Chances are you've seen someone with a tattoo behind their ear, right? They have to be small, but it's a place that many people choose for their skin art. I will tell you that because there isn't a ton of skin covering the bone behind your ear, it will hurt a bit. However, it's a classy place to put a tattoo that won't be super obvious to everyone. Here are some ear tattoos that I think you are going to like.
