Hey~ I'm about to get my first tattoo and its going to be a small ankh behind my right ear.. my question is for ppl who have a tatoo in this location..Pain really isn't a factor for me cuz i think you shouldn't worry about that if you really want the tatoo.. but I'm getting a lil nervous because ppl keep telling me its going to be horrible because its right on the bone.. of course none of these ppl actually have a tattoo there.. So i was just wanting a lil input from some actually experienced ppl!

Thanks Alot!

If pain isn't a factor, who cares what people say? Its not like you are talking about a mammoth session on your head. Have fun and post pictures!

I just got a "13" done behind my left ear on Friday the 13th, so the experience is fresh in my mind. I have a copious ammount of tattoos, and it was honestly the least painful tattoo I've received, hands down.


Beyond that, I typical do a few small behind-the-ear pieces a month, and I never have anyone complain about it.

You should be fine

Had to come out of lurkerdom to agree with CxCx.

Was tattooed behind my ear about 2 weeks ago. Least painful tattoo I have, without a doubt.

My artist made a comment about how behind the ear was becoming a trendy first tattoo in the shop, and I told him to make sure to mention to those people that this was not how tattoos feel.

The buzzing sensation in my head was odd, but the pain was minimal. I wouldn't say painless, but damn close. I have approx. 10 hours worth of work, and by all accounts, am a giant wuss when it comes to being tattooed.

Good luck. Very Happy

I have a shamrock tattoo behind my ear


It wasn't exactly a painless experience nor should it be. However it was completely bearable and I was actually surprised how well I handled it. If you want it bad enough who cares about the pain! Smile

It is definitely becoming trendy, since I got mine done a few years ago I keep noticing more and more of them. It'll be funny when some people get older and realize that that's a pretty visible place when they're not so fond of their tatoo anymore.

Anyways that area barely hurts if at all. Have fun.
