12 Awesome Helix Tattoos

You've probably didn't even know what helix tattooing was until it became a trend. Simply put, the outer rim of the ear that extends from the superior insertion of the ear on the scalp (root) to the termination of the cartilage at the earlobe is inked. The artists who do these tattoos—also referred to as “cartilage tattoos” on some posts—somehow manage to fix beautifully executed designs in the tiny space allotted.
