How Much Will A Tattoo Behind The Ear Hurt?

I currently have three tattoos, Shoulder blade, foot and calf. I wanted to get a tattoo behind my ear and wanted opinions from people that actually have tattoos behind their ear and how it compares?

It was my least painful tattoo and I’ve got one on each wrist and one on my collar bone aswell. It’s more of an annoying vibration than pain.

seriously it’s not bad, AT ALL.
Im 18, and im a wimp.
I got my first tattoo on Thursday, 3 days ago. I got it behind my ear. It took all of 5 minutes and just felt like scratching, seriously barely any pain. People say the healing hurts, but mine doesn’t hurt now, and hasn’t at all. I think you should go for it! Even if it did hurt, WHICH IT DOESNT, it’s something you’ll have forever. And I think the 5 seconds of pain is worth it.
it just feels like a little bit of scratching, not bad at all!
good luck!

It’s really not that bad, especially if you already have a shoulder blade and a foot tattoo. The worst part is the sound, since it’s so close to your ear. Also, tattoos in this area tend to be small, so it’s over quickly. If you want it, go for it! I think you’ll find it quite bearable in comparison. Good luck!

It’s not any worse than your foot. It’s not bad on your neck, but you can definitely feel it when they are tattooing on your skull. It’s over really quickly though

I don’t have a tattoo.. but I think it might hurt a lot since the are is almost pure bone and why would you want to get tattoo where people can’t see it?
