This New Tattoo Trend Will Replace Your Ear Piercings

Natasha Patel , 13 May 2017

If there’s one thing (other than creating bronzed and fresh looks on my face with makeup) that gives me joy,  it’s making holes on my ears. Piercings and tattoos are probably my second favourite thing in the world. And when this new Instagram trend started blowing up, it got me so, so happy.

Say hello to helix tattoos.

What is it?

Helix is the thin curved area on the side of your ear that’s now the new spot to sport some rad ink. Basically it’s the ultimate way to up your lack of bling on your ears.

Here are some pictures for inspiration:
