11 Tasteful & Badass Under Eye Tattoos

By Tattoo Ideas

If you're looking to get a face tattoo that's subtle, not too many and badass at the same time, get symbols tattooed under your eye

A face tattoo is a pretty big commitment but they look super badass and can be made in a subtle way - for example by placing it under the eye. However, keep in mind that some designs can carry a deeper meaning, often connected with gangs and prison tattoos, even if under eye tattoos have started to become more and more common.

The infamous Tear Drop is a popular prison tattoo symbol that can mean many things. For some prisons, an outline symbolizes attempted murder, while a full black teardrop means that the prisoner committed murder. A life has been taken, which explains why the design is such. If you're a newbie in prison and you happen to have one, you can get in big trouble. Because tattoos are earned there.

Under Eye Tattoo

Under eye tattoos can be subtle and feminine too, while still keeping their edgy touch. Kat Von D, the LA Ink star, has stars tattooed on her temple, right down the bottom of her pretty eye.

Crosses are among the most popular tattoo motifs and their simple and fine design makes them well suitable for an under eye tattoo. Check out Luke Wessman, The Coveteur, who also sports a cross under his left eye. He looks really clean and sharp in that outfit. A good way to dress up heavy tattoos!

Under eye tattoos look also really hot on women, especially when backed with full blown confidence.
