The new trend in tattoos this year: ear tattoos!

There is a new trend in tattooing currently going on, especially on Instagram. We are talking here about getting on the ear, more precisely on the helix, the upper and lateral part of the outer ear. This part of the body is mainly composed of elastic cartilage lined with a thin layer of skin. It is one of the most sensitive part of the human body!

It’s not the easiest place to tattoo on the human body. Often times, ear tattoos require a lot of details and fine lines. Fortunately, some tattoo artists have become real experts in ear tattoos. 

From flowers, to patterns, to minimalist lines, almost every design can be made. The only limit is really the space available to create the tattoo!

Here are some examples of tattoos on the helix or the surrounding area, which are now trending on social media. 

Is it a body ornament that you would like to display or not?

Which one do you prefer? Would you get an ear tattoo? Do you have any tattoos now? They are not for everybody but can look so good on some people! The good thing is, with helix tattoos they are so subtle and delicate that you can easily hide them.
