Intricate Ear Tattoos - Sorry Mom Tattoo Aftercare Balm

Helix tattoos (ear tattoos where the cartilage is) are perfect for those who want a discreet and minimalist tattoo that can be covered by their hair. Gracing the curve of the upper area of the ear, helix tattoos are usually tiny and intricate, but look great as there’s still an endless possibility of designs to be made. Some choose to have the inside of their ears done, others opt for the outer part at the top of the ear. Either way, we think they look great! 

From beautiful floral designs to little geometric symbols, there are tonnes of cute ideas out there, and helix tattoos are also a great alternative to cartilage piercings which can sometimes be damaging to the area, so it’s a brilliant form of body art that’s currently taking Instagram by storm.  As a supplier of Sorry Mom Tattoo Aftercare Balm, we love all things tattoos and are keen to keep up with the latest tattoo trends!

Because they’re so tiny and on cartilage, the aftercare process should be relatively easy and quick but they still need looking after like with any other tattoo. It’s also worth noting that shampoo and conditioner should be avoided during the healing process as this can irritate the tattoo. 

The tattoo process itself can be quite painful though with it being such a sensitive area, according to some sources, ear tattoos can cause temporary jaw lock, headaches, and dizzy spells, so think carefully before you decide to go through with an ear tattoo! The best thing to do is talk it through with a reputable tattoo artist who’ll be able to give you the best information and advice about the procedure and make sure it’s done as safely as possible!
