I'm currently in the market for a new tattoo, which means my Instagram search history is basically just a list of tattoo artists, inspiration accounts, and ink-related hashtags.
Through my obsessive researching, I've noticed the same tattoo design popping up over and over again on my feed – and it's really freaking cool.
Like fashion trends and hair color fads, tattoo trends come and go (remember that one spring when everyone you know got a feather tattoo?). This summer, a new trend is budding: vine ear tattoos.
I know, that sounds oddly specific. But the pics don't lie. People are getting leafy branches permanently sketched on their cartilage, a cool alternative to your classic upper-ear stud.
The trend isn't exactly surprising: vines have been growing in popularity over the past few years. Ariana Grande herself recently added a massive bunch of leaves to her Pete Davidson-era "Always" tattoo and has a tiny version on her finger (another Pete cover-up).
The placement is really what makes the look unique, though. I mean, just look at these designs! You're going to want one too.
