So I am wanting to get something similar to the picture I attached, but I'm wondering how small I could go with a piece like this. I want to do it on my lower leg where I have one very large shin piece. So I'd like to keep the rest smaller so I can obviously fit more on my short legs!
 
This is just a mockup I've made with reference images to give my artist an idea of what I'm looking for, so obviously the design will change.

That's a suave tattoo design.  I can't tell you how small you could go because I don't know you and I'm a very bad visualizer.  BUT, your (good) artist will definitely let you know that some of your elements need to be big enough so that they don't blob together after some years or are hard to see.  Like the moon, or the details in the pearls above the ribbon.  So keep in mind it will have to be big enough to make sure those can be seen/or tattooed clearly.

Thanks everyone! I ended up doing a completely different design, this one is still in the idea pile though. The one I got was a large palm size.

I want to fill my legs but I'm short so I don't have a lot of real estate for pieces LOL!

    • I'm no expert, but in my research I've learned that there's a few possible causes for this. If it's an allergic reaction it can go away on its own. Some get it days after getting the tattoo and others years - it varies person to person. If it doesn't go away on its own definitely go see a dermatologist or at the very least talk to your tattoo artist. It could also be an infection caused by lack of proper care during the healing process. I've also learned that applying too much skin care products can essentially cause itchy, white bumps. Again, I'm not an expert and someone else here will probably have a better answer for you. But if you're that worried about it talk to your artist or see a dermatologist. Good luck and try not to worry.
    • Yeah, looks normal to me as well. Just sit back and let the healing process do its thing. 
    • more pictures! I also got a traditional piece in May! I must say it's my favourite piece so far :) Enviado desde mi Redmi Note 8 Pro mediante Tapatalk
