The cool new place to get a tattoo is apparently the helix. Don’t know where that is? It’s the spot on the ear’s upper-outer curve. Some talented tattoo artists are managing to craft beautiful floral designs even in the impossibly small space. The outcome is an intricate, dainty, fresh jewelry-inspired look that’s prettier than any piercing.
According to Konbini, Seoul-based tattoo artist Zihee is the designer to choose for a knockout helix. Her “distinctive style merges nature-inspired watercolor illustrations with a more contemporary aesthetic by adding a minimalist touch through geometric patterns and abstract details.”
Check out some of these teeny works of art:

Even celebrities are embracing the helix tat trend. It’s easy to see why: The tats are easy to cover up with a strand of hair when necessary. But all it takes is a ponytail to show off your artwork. Cara Delevingne has a teeny diamond helix that’s better than any cartilage piercing.
