What Behind the Ear Tattoo Should I Get?

'Behind the ear pieces suit being quite small as it’s such a small area to work on,' advises Hawkes. (Source: www.elle.com)

What Aftercare Do Behind the Tattoos Need?

So you've had your tattoo and the hardest part is out of the way right? Not so.

Definitely make sure you’re washing out all shampoo and conditioner properly after you’ve washed your hair.'
