Pain behind the ear

The area around the earlobes is quite sensitive. Different people don’t react the same to pain; some say this is one of the most painful spots, while others feel almost nothing. However, ears are a sensitive spot according to most people. Be prepared for your tattoo sitting, although it is n’t going to take long for such a small tattoo. Remember, tattoos consisting only outlines will hurt more, than fully covered spots. The needles used for outlines are thinner, sharper and go deeper into your skin.  Pressure is the reason it is more painful. Also, the area behind the ear has thin skin and is close to your skull bones, so again you can experience unpleasant feelings.

The aftercare of the tattoo behind the ear is not that different from all other tattoos, but as long as you need to use antibacterial soap, you should try to avoid shampoos and especially rubbing your fresh tattoos. Girls with long hair should try to keep their hair up and away from the tattoo for the first few days.
