25 Tasteful Behind the Ear Tattoos Part 1

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

Behind the ear tattoos seem to be more popular with the ladies: they're fun, cute & subtle. But men are catching up on the trend.

Behind the ear is a great place for a tattoo because it's a place on the head that is less threatening than a face tattoo and easier to hide in a work setting. Although you might want to consider all that buzz that'll get in your ear while getting tatted which you will experience intensely. The pain still varies from person to person as some describe it as a tickling sensation, some still claimed that theirs hurt like hell. The skin around it is pretty thin and delicate so you'll have to prepare yourself with how you'll take it. But don't let that stop you from giving it a go!
