Style-savvy girls going under the needle is not a new thing: Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, Miley Cyrus, and even Kylie Jenner are regularly seen showing off ink both new and old. But!

That said, if you’re dying to get some art, sticking to something simple for your first one may be the way to go. Lucky for you, we’ve been studying up on cool tattoo ideas that are simple—and won’t make your mom cry.

Plus, they come off more like a chic accessory than, say, a questionable giant flower or truly awful Chinese characters. We’ve rounded up 30 photos that showcase simple, streamlined ink that your boss might even like. (Well, that depends.)
