10+ Why The Helix Tattoo Is A Fantastic Idea

Body modifications are excellent ways to show off your individuality. They make a statement. Tattoos, piercings, and various others. Tattoos, in particular, turn your skin into a canvas for a masterpiece. That’s why people are willing to pay huge prices to get their skin all prettied up!

As of late, a recent craze has taken over Instagram. It’s the helix tattoo. Now, before I let you go any further, I have to explain what the helix is.

The outer rim of your ear, the one that curves from your lobe but is a bit more sturdy, that part is your helix. Recently, instagrammers (Is that a word?) were overtaken by the pretty and simple tattoos they could get on their ear! Men and women alike are getting it done.

Collected below are some of the most eye-catching ear tats you will ever see!

What about you? Do you have the itch to get your helix all tatted up? Or do you prefer the au naturel look?

Honestly, the one thing that irritates me about this is that no biologist got their helix tattooed up in the shape of a DNA strand. A double helix.

Not only would it look gorgeous, it would also be the most funniest tattoo you can get without it being ugly!

Any takers?
