With all the types of ear piercings out there today, it’s no secret that there are a million different ways you can deck out your ears. But the latest tattoo trend (for your ears!), first seen on Instagram, is drawing the attention of millions.
Helix tattoos are all the rage right now. These minimalistic, delicate designs are tatted on to the cartilage of your ear, giving the appearance of an ear cuff or ring. Even those who aren’t fans of tattoos are sure to fall in love with these dainty tats.
The helix is the thin curved outer part of the ear that people are jazzing up with all sorts of designs, from flowers to simple minimalistic lines. According to Yahoo Style, the trend has blown up thanks to tattoo artist Zihee.
Zihee posts beautiful pictures of her nature-inspired tats and currently has over 90,000 followers on Instagram. An artist from Seoul, Zihee’s style doesn’t fit into any specific category and fans are losing it over her simple yet beautiful, vibrant designs.
Her designs have hints of a watercolor-like style with hints of a traditional style mixed in. Most of her work seems to be very delicate and placed in a discrete areas, which makes sense when you take into account the fact that South Korea still frowns upon tattoos.
Besides the fact that these tattoos look super cute and chic, you’ll never have to worry about losing an earring again!
What do you think about this new trend? Would you consider getting a helix tattoo? We can’t guarantee that they’ll still be trendy 30 years from now, but at least you know your ears will always look cool!
