Tattooing is an eternal subject for discussion. Adults forbid it, but young people continue to discuss sketches, assuring that they will get their first tattoo very soon. Perhaps, among other equals, this is a relatively neutral way of self-expression. Tattooed people do not hold parades, they do not proclaim mottos, they do not lure them into their "brotherhood". The attitude to body painting is also leveled by the fact that the aesthetics of images has replaced "partaks" and "uneven ink blots". The nature of the drawings and inscriptions on the body has remained the same — this is the desire to tell about yourself, or rather to give instructions to others about how to perceive their owner.
Some time ago, only creative people preferred to beat a tattoo behind the ear. They placed either a pen behind their ear, symbolizing participation in writing texts and poems, or a note indicating belonging to a musical party.
Many famous characters beat tattoos behind the ear. They include singer Rita Ora, rapper Young Money, former lead singer of the band Smash, Sergey Lazarev, actor Pavel Priluchny. Now, when tattoos themselves are in the mainstream, there is no reason to attach excessive importance to the location of the drawing.
Tattoos behind the ear for girls, it seems, have even replaced earrings. Instead of massive cuffs and shy poussets, miniature images have come. They do not need to be selected for a specific event, they are integral in themselves, regardless of the outfit and styling.
Another option why girls prefer a tattoo behind the ear is the location. Barely noticeable, hidden behind strands of hair, such drawings are called "for yourself". The advantage of such tattoos is that the area of skin near the ear is least susceptible to age-related changes, so it will remain unchanged for many years.
Tattooing behind the ear for men has become fashionable again with the spread of rap culture. Young people prefer concise drawings, for example, signs, symbols, abstraction. Such tattoos take up a minimum of space, which means that they are cheaper. If a man has a scar or a postoperative suture, a tattoo behind the ear is truly a great way to mask this shortcoming.
You should not be afraid of pain and criticism. The application feels like a light scratching or injection. And as for the opinion of the public, the chosen tattoo can not appeal to absolutely everyone, it is enough that you like it directly.
To apply a tattoo on or near the ear, it is better to choose miniature drawings. Large ones will look rather ridiculous.
Images of birds, stars, flowers, crowns are suitable for girls. Some ladies choose inscriptions with the initials of relatives and friends. Animal silhouettes and symbols of the elements are also popular.
As for men, they prefer to do tattoos behind the ear in the form of ornaments, hieroglyphs, banknotes, weapons. Sketches for men's tattoos are more brutal and predatory. They are more often an element of style, while girls use tattoos as a kind of memory diary.
Sometimes tattoos are made semicircular to repeat the bend of the auricle, in other cases, the pattern is pinned on the earlobe or slightly higher, at Darwin's tubercle.
The meaning of the tattoo behind the ear depends on the style of the drawing. So, soaring dandelion seeds mean ease on the rise, and the tiger's paw — courage and courage, initials — affection and strong feelings for a certain person, anchor — dreams of a safe harbor, the dollar sign — the desire to get rich, and the infinity sign — faith in the cyclical nature of being.
The meaning that is put into the tattoo by the owner is more important than the official decoding of the sketch. It is possible that there will be no subtext in the tattoo at all, but there will be a memorable bookmark about an important day. When you find a suitable sketch for yourself, you will understand: this meeting is not accidental, but this love is forever.
