Behind your ear is a great place to get a tattoo, as you can keep it hidden when you need to. That's precisely one of the most exciting aspects of inkings placed behind the ears: how visible yet concealable they are. A great spot for the likes of dainty tattoos and beyond.
People think that getting a tattoo behind the ear hurts, but it really doesn't. According to tattooers, clients are always like 'this isn't as bad as I thought it would be.' On the pain meter, it clocks in about the same as any neck tattoo, but may be more of a headache. This small area of skin is directly above your skull, so if you go for an electric tattoo, you'll feel the vibrations of the tattoo gun in your head. It sounds frightening, but really may be more of an annoyance than anything.
When shampooing with your new tat, take care to avoid aggressively rubbing the area. This can prematurely dislodge the scabs, which are essential to proper healing.
