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.

Regarding behind the ear tattoo cost, the price completely changes based on what you get, but although cost is variable, behind the ear tattoos cost on average between $100 and $200, and its price ultimately comes down to the amount of time it takes your artist to complete. While most behind the ear tattoos can be completed quickly, even the smallest tattoo can become expensive as its design increases in complexity. Styles such as microrealism, with complex shading and details, take longer to ink irrespective of size. Minimal, line-based tattoos are cheaper than a highly detailed tattoo. The more detail or complex shading, the longer the tattoo will take to render and therefore the more the tattoo will cost.

While it鈥檚 essential that you to take your time with your design and its placement (it is going to be a permanent addition to your body, after all), bear in mind that the fees account for, and will increase, based on the amount of time the artist spends with a client before the actual tattooing begins on the day of the appointment. If you take a long time deciding on placement even for a very small tattoo, you will be charged more. You should be cognizant of the fact that all of that time adds to the final cost of your tattoo.
