"It makes me laugh when people tell me I'm going to regret my tattoos when I'm older. Yeah, when my health is deteriorating, and I struggle to get around, I'm sure the first thought I'll have is, "Damn, I wish I didn't have tattoos that remind me of the good days." Yeah, right."For an individual with tattoos, it isn't simply a medium to decorate or put colorful designs on his/her body.

Although we mentioned that these tattoos are more popular among women, it shouldn't automatically reflect that men can't get one for themselves. With interesting, head-turning designs, anyone can get a tattoo inked behind their ears.
1. Skull Tattoo Behind the Ear
Yes, of course. No matter where you get a tattoo inked on your body, it is going to be painful. When you get a tattoo done, the needle(s) will pierce your skin in order to inject the ink. Now, if you are wondering what the pain level will be on a scale of 1―10, then the answer will be a bit fuzzy. Technically speaking, every individual is capable to handling pain; however, it is difficult to anticipate as to "how much" is too much.
On the other hand, since we are talking about a tattoo behind the ear, the level of pain can be a bit high. As the skin is quite thin and delicate, without any body fat or muscle, the process is going to be a bit more sensitive. But don't let it deter you from getting a tattoo at this location. Once you make up your mind about getting a tattoo, and are completely aware of the process, you will be surprised to learn that your body is capable of withstanding the pain. Plus, the pain is only temporary, but the tattoo will look cool on you forever.
Since these types of tattoos can be easily concealed, they rarely become controversial at work (unless the design stretches down the neck). Whether this will be your first tattoo, or the tenth, what matters the most is that you are proud of your ink, and be kind to others. This way, you can leave a lifelong impression on people who are worth impressing, and cast aside the negative attitudes coming your way.
