Good ear tattoos are appropriate for both men and women. These pictures of ear tattoos can also be voted on, so that the most popular ear body art makes it up to the top. Ear tattoos aren't for everyone, but they look awesome on the right person.

Men might opt for something curving around the area as the ear itself is the perfect shape for that. Tribal tattoos work well in this area as well. Some might choose to start a tattoo on the ear and extend it around the base of the skull and down the neck. Other ear tattoos might just be a small logo or design behind the ear for a simple ear tattoo.

Women might also opt for elaborate ear tattoos, though many choose a more 'delicate' looking tattoo design - a small butterfly or a heart, for instance. Celebrities like Rihanna have tattoos just behind the ear (hers is a small vine-like design). Jessie J has a pair of musical notes in the shape of a heart for her ear tattoo while Miley Cyrus has LOVE tattooed in her ear. Many other women choose tattoos that can be covered by hair or a hat.

    Whether you choose one bird or more for an ear tattoo, there are great possibilities when choosing ear art designs. There can be birds flying behind the ear, small birds in the ear, and, for people with less hair over the ear, you could even have a bird perching on the top of the ear.

    Choosing a cat for an ear tattoo makes great sense since the kitty can hide out behind the ear while the tail unfurls down the base of the skull.

    Music Ear Tattoos

    Since the ear is the part of the body that takes the most benefit from music, having musical notes on the ear or in the ear makes for a pretty cool ear tat.
