12 Small Stick and Poke Tattoo Ideas

When most people think of small tattoos, they think of electric tattooing, but there’s another way: stick and poke tats

Though stick n’ pokes can be done at home, there are also incredibly talented stick and poke artists out there that get brilliant results.

Because you can get stick and pokes without being tethered to electricity the experience usually feels a bit more calming than machine-done tattoos, and the studios are often much quieter. It also hurts less, but that can vary by artist.
