Behind the ear tattoo. GET IN HERE! UPDATE WITH A QUESTION!!!

I'm wanting to get my very first tattoo. 

Almost 100% certain I want it behind my left ear. 

Any of you ladies gotten a tattoo? Behind the ear? Or where? Do you love it, hate it? 

Can you cover it up easily?


Here is a link to the woman's site who I'm looking to have commission my piece. I love this drawing.

Do you guys think it's too detailed for such a small tattoo? Obviously it would be unique and I could have her do other stuff to it.


I did not intend to start a debate on hiring practices. I'm not looking for a job, and won't be looking for a job in 5 years or more. Where I'm putting this tattoo it can be easily covered by my hair, or if needed I will put make-up on it to cover it IF I'm requested to. 

I just wanted some info from you ladies who've had this done, or other tattoos. :/



Hey ladies! I got my tattoo! But now I would like to wash my hair, take a shower. The tattoo lady seemed kinda leary when I asked her about it, didn't really give me a straight answer.

SO, if you've gotten a tattoo close to your hair, how long did you wait to wash it? Did you use something different than your normal shampoo? Any input will be appreciated!

I don't have one behind the ear but that reminded me of this one:

I have an anchor behind my right ear. The buzzing in my head while I was getting it sucked and it was kind of painful but it was over quick. If you have long hair it's easy to hide. I love mine especially the placement of it. What do want to get

I have one and it tickled honestly. The constant vibration got annoying after awhile but I love it. It's for my dd

I want to commission a work from this artist. Something very similar to this link.

Her works are amazing and I love that each one is unique to the commissioner.

Cool, I have always wanted a tattoo, but just recently decided that that is where I'd like it. I'd also like wolves running around my ankle, but I've heard those are very painful, so I didn't want that to be the first one.

What did you have done? How long did it take?

My niece has one tattoo and it is behind her ear. She said it didn't hurt. I have three (ankle, inner wrist and top of foot). My ankle didn't hurt.

I have one behind both ears and it was the most painless tattoo I have. I love it, I guess, I always forget I have them hahahahah
