# Eliminate tail of curved arrow [duplicate]

I tried to draw a curved arrow like this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\draw[->,thick] (2,1) edge[bend left=50] (3,2);
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}


However, there is an undesired "tail" of the arrow. How can I eliminate it?

Define as node the starting and the ending points.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\node (A) at (2,1) {};
\node (B) at (3,2) {};
\draw[-latex,thick] (A) edge[bend left=50] (B);
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}
