A new tattoo trend is taking over Instagram, and, we must say, it's pretty awesome. Say goodbye to earrings and ear cuffs, and hello to helix tattoos.

The helix is the thin curved outer part of the ear and now people are jazzing it up with dainty ink designs. From flowers to paw prints to minimalist lines - there are so many different ways to spice up your helix, the possibilities are endless. The best part? You never have to worry about losing an earring again!

I love this, it's so simple ♥ I'd want to get a black tattoo just like this one, only if the black ink stayed black forever, but nah it's a pity it turns kinda green after a while and it needs to be retouched :/

With this one, you have to consider the fact that you will look like Van Gogh with your ear wrapped up like that (-;
