We've gotten some pretty sweet and thrill feedback on our previous face tattoo post a while back and we're back with another. Although these face tattoos aren't as hardcore as the ones before, they're just as banging.

The side face tattoo is pretty self-explanatory. It's a more slightly ‘discreet’ option in face tattoos. In most cases, people get thin and vertical tattoo designs like daggers, arrows, and straight razors to put on the far side of their faces fitted snugly beside the tragus. Some opt for larger designs that stretch to their cheeks and forehead.

Side face tattoos—all types of face tattoos, for that matter—isn't for everyone. You can't be just squeamish to assume that all face tattoos are shitty. That's a pretty flawed opinion. If you get offended with people giving you crap about your own tattoos, it would be pretty hypocritical to do the same with people with face tattoos. #Respect

Go with white ink if you want to be a bit bolder yet not too bold. Watson Atkinson does excellent white ink tattoos.

Half mandalas and dotwork go together really well and the ones I've seen on the face turned out really good so far like this one.
