Tiny But Mighty: Behind The Ear Tattoos

beccyrimmer in Tattoo Ideas

The optimum place to get something small and personal - here are some behind the ear tattoos that are perfect!

Getting a tattoo on your face or neck is a pretty big step, and something I wouldn't recommend doing unless you're heavily tattooed and have a job that is not affected by being so.

That being said, behind the ear can be the perfect place to get something small, meaningful, that can be hidden when you wish if you've got long hair like me!

The ear's a really interesting place when it comes to your artist designing the right shaped tattoo. Designs that curve around or pop out from behind the ear can look phenomenal. All the tattoos below are perfectly placed to complement the shape of this area of the body.
