Who Needs Multiple Piercings When You Have This New Tattoo Trend?
Aren’t tiny tattoos the cutest? When they first started trending, we all rushed to get a teeny little pineapple or palm tree on various parts of our bodies. Well, they’re hot again, but only on a specific spot on your body. Known as a helix tattoo, it involves getting some permanent ink on the rim of your ear.
Obviously it takes away the need to get a piercing on that spot, but you can be damn sure the pain will possibly be the same, or maybe even more. Here’s what you’ll see if you hunt for #HelixTattoo on Instagram.
Abstract lines in close proximity are minimal and always a great idea! They’re not too in-your-face and definitely add some edge to the rim of your ear.
There are a bunch of different ways in which people have been doing dots and lines.
And it’s as popular with men as it is with women!
But most people have been getting a lavender stem going up the side of their ear.
Or even a long vine of leaves, like this one!
You’ve got to admit, it’s a great spot for a tattoo. It’s barely visible, you yourself can’t see it, so there’s no fear of getting sick of it.
