Tattoo Ideas: Face, Neck, Head, Ears

Kat Von D of "Miami Ink" has not just one, but thirteen, face tattoos
Kat Von D of "Miami Ink" has not just one, but thirteen, face tattoos

Have you ever seen footage from a prison yard or a black and white mugshot photo of a man with a black tear tattooed just below his eye? This is a common gang- and prison-related marking. The number of tears you have represents the number of people you have killed. But facial tattoos aren't just for criminals anymore. People who opt for neck, face and head body modifications are a far cry from those who only get tattoos in places that are discreet or can be easily covered up or hidden if necessary. Although as my father was quick to remind me when I got my tongue pierced at the age of seventeen, "Now you'll never get that high-power job in corporate America", not everyone has the same values, and not everyone cares whether or not their body mods are socially acceptable. As I was quick to remind him, "Who ever said I wanted a job in corporate America?"

Besides, face and neck tattoos aren't just for the hardest of tattoo lovers -- a girl I know has the signature of a friend of hers who died young inked in tiny print behind her ear, and it actually looks very tasteful, delicate and perfectly placed. The small butterflies and stars tattooed on the same place of the women featured in the photo galleries below look equally appealing. Kat Von D, renowned portrait tattoo artist featured on the TLC reality series "Miami Ink", has a series of thirteen small black stars lining her face alongside her brow.

Of course, there will always be someone willing to take it to the extreme, like the Lizard Man who covered his body with green scales up and down, including on his face, and had his tongue surgically split to appear more reptilian. Or the people who emblazon the names of loved ones in huge script on the sides of their necks, and the men and women who shave their heads and cover the scalp with words and images. Some people go the extra step and have metal nodes surgically implanted beneath their scalp to give the appearance of horns. For those of you with weaker stomachs, not to worry -- the most extreme tattoo I'm including here is the black and white image of a skull inked atop a guy's bald head.

just thought ide comment on the tear drop tattooes you talked about the tear drop was origanally meant to signify how long an inmate had done on a life sentence 5 years for each tear drop some how some kid thought they would use this for there gang or whatever which seems quite odd seeing as these gangs are supposed to be all about honor when they can't even honor the meanings of some of the oldest tatts

I have a japanese symbol for hope in red ink behind my ear, I love it and it's such a great location on the body as not everyone notices it, I don't think all my friends even know I have it still and I got it done almost 2 years ago! ;D

I would recommend behind the ear tattooing to anyone! ;D

Beckii 7 years ago

I love behind the ear tattoos, and think that they are like many have already said are really cute and yet descreet, I have two tattoos already one on each wrist, words and pictures and want a small pheonix behind my left ear! the tattoos you've posted are really quite cool, although don't think I could go as far as face tattoos, as don't think it would suit me! 4weeks and I'll finally have my pheonix =] whooo!

YO u are all missing the most important fact !! tattoos are personal to that indervidual,it don't matter gang related,someone u luve,or just a crazy idea you had one day tattoos are of personal taste if the person is happy that's all that matters.??

missjess 7 years ago

neck tattoos 6 years ago

you can do that, although i don't think that will come out as well.

Most tattoo artists when wanting to make different shades of grey just dilute the black ink with water. That gives the appearance of shading (the lighter the color gets, the less noticible and so forth). If you mix white with it there is a chance the color wont stay as well over time, and also it will be much brighter looking and not realistic.

I have many friends who are tattoo artists and they all just dilute the black to make the different shades.

neck tattoos 6 years ago

yeah, I can't believe how popular neck tattoos are now. i think I like the back of the neck better than the side, but that's just my opinion. i've seen some cool tats on the side of the neck as well, just depends on what you're looking for. it's also cool if you can have a design start on the back of the neck and then continue down the back, especially if the part on the neck actually looks like an original design and then you'd never know it extended down.

Pleski 6 years ago

Geez I hope most of those are temorary. I say anyone who thinks they're gonna love a highly visible tattoo for the rest of their lives should try wearing their favourite logo shirt for a year non-stop and see how much they like it after then. Face tattoos are a stupidity barcode.

hot coco 6 years ago

what up with that bad stuff

Neck Tattoos 6 years ago

Hey, I really like the images you chose. Neck tattoos are pretty rockin. If you get a visible one it's a statement. It says F U Corporate and conformity...I'm gonna be a rock star! It'd be pretty cool to be in that place in life where I call the shots but for now I will get my tats where I they can be concealed.

I'm liking the nape of the neck more and more. Face tattoos are just a bad idea especially for girls.

Tatts are original to everyone who gets them. it obviously means something to them so why hate? and when im 60 or even 50 im not going to care what people think of me anyway. I don't now so why would i then? ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE SAYING NASTY AND HATEFULL SHIT I AGREE WITH KENDA WHY ARE YOU TAKING TIME OUTTA YOUR DAY TO HATE ON SOMEONE ELSE?

I want her to be extensively tattood eventually.

She is now 25 years old. When she is 35 she will be beautifully heavily tattood woman!

You make it seem like your tranquilized when he's doing this. Your scared like hell? Who's making the decisions here? Curious about people who get face tattoos. What do you do for a living? How old are you? I see a lot of street kids in Berkeley, Ca with street tats. It's sad.

HotCarl 6 years ago

As a tattoo artist, i will never tattoo someone's hands, face or neck. They are "career killers". Unless you are a mature, established, adult who already has found their career and way in life, I will never tattoo their necks, face or hands. Most people who come into the shop wanting these tattoos are young kids 18-24, most of whom have no idea what they want to do with their lives, and if they do have an idea, it is horribly unrealistic. They see some rap star or reality tv star or rock star with a face, neck or hand tat and think its cool so they want one too. I tell em to get their shit and life together, then we can talk about inking up your face, hands or neck.

i like kats face tats as well and i also like the face tats on star trek on deep space nine i cant remember her name on the show

rob 6 years ago

How I pity you poor kids, who permanently brand yourself with your tattoos as pathetic losers, drug users, drunkards, partiers, criminals, etc., No employer will ever hire you, you can never have a relationship with a normal person since when they see you they will want to vomit and run, and when you go in the store, people look at you like you are the walking dead.

rob 6 years ago

sorry I was so frank but you should hear from someone truthful, someone other than these losers telling you to go ahead and ruin yourself/.

Kelley 6 years ago

My comment is on Rob. We don't care if you don't want to be tatd! why do you care if we are?

What are you afraid of a little individualism? I am a mother of 4 girls, and my girls love me for me not my tats. They are as individual as the person wearing them. so if I were to guess what type of tat you would have it would be say " I'm an ASSH LE!" My tats tell a story of who I am, BETTY BOOP says I am sexy, Chilly Willy says I am fun, My ladybug says I am cute and fun, MY Family tat says just that FAMILY! and my lower back of a huge butterfly says prrrrr.... come get me Matthew, who by the way is my husband of over 20 yrs!

get a life Rob

Heyyjoe 6 years ago

I fuckin love tattoos have 2 sleves an connected chest piece an throat :) but anyone who tattoos their entire face does some heavy drugs dude

rob 6 years ago

In response to Kelley, I care because I find tattoos repulsive to look at and i don't want to be grossed out when I see you in the store, OK? And if you want to call names, you say I am an assho_e but you are definitely a fool.

Vicky 6 years ago

Eight months ago I got my first tattoo, my mum came with me at tattoo shop and I got a nice flower with a bird on left side of neck. Five days ago, for my 16 years, my mother offered my a nice and colorful butterly that I choosed to put on right cheek, and since I had 250 bucks from grandma I decided to put a nice sacred heart on left cheek. First tattoo last one hour and half, second 4 hours; it was very painful but well worth it. Now I'm happy and am searching ideas for something to put on left side of neck.

Werd 6 years ago

Tattoos are a dense way of expressing the desire of the libido or lower self to connect to the abstract. They are the abstract and are ineffable and unattainable. On the body they soon become old, then banal, and then absurd as the mind in culture chooses other abstracts to identify itself with. They represent slavery and abdication of the body in conjunction with reality itself as it presents itself to be. They are a cultural abstraction and distraction, always representing the middle heaven of culture. Arm bands of the 90's represent a tribal abstract that now no longer exists, so now an arm band which actually almost had a religious connotation is an absurdity. The global eco-tribe conciousness is gone, and its remnants now stick out as unrecognizable symbols of absurd vanity. All is vanity is coined in the tattoo. It's highest relevance would be a tribal indicator as in the military, bikers or the rockstars of old, when they had the rebellious commitment of sincerity, and spiritual distinction and dedication to one's art or way of life.

Dr Tim Norris 6 years ago

I simply cannot understand this craze for tattooing. There is alleged to be a "spritual" side. I am an engineer and scientist. Human skin usually takes care of itself. What is the functional point of injecting ink into human skin, especially when the ink spreads with time and looks aesthetically awful after 10 to 20 years ? I have wondered whether or not I should invest in training an equipment to open a tattoo removal parlour - maybe I can earn a good living from it in retirement !

Kind regards

Timok 5 years ago

Tattoos are a form of art. Some tattoos are really fantastic graphical concepts and enshrine great creativity and thought. Where I have a doudt is why thisart needs to be expressed in an unstable media like skin wherein the ink gradually diffuses, enters the blood stream and then causes cancers and reduces functional operation of human organs vital for life. Maybe I'm just too objective and "unspiritual". I cannot understand this craze for tattoos. It seems to appeal to some illogical primordial drive lying deep down in the human psychi. Would it not be more sensible to express this tattoo art on a more stable substrate than living skin ?

Best regards

my girlfriend has most of her face tattooed mainly to cover up previous badly done tattoos she got at a younger age i have to say its looking loads better now mainly because she found a good artist who was able to turn it around. she always says if she could turn back the clock she would never have done it in the first place! think before you ink!!

Lix 5 years ago

Face tattoos can be covered up with make up cant they? If your worried about jobs and the like, throw on a bit of foundation, girl and guy alike, no one will notice!

Besides, as already said, they mean some different to each person, whos anyone else to judge, everybody enjoy life! still haters gonna hate though :(

Wow, there are some really judgemental folks on here...sad really. I would just like to say that not everybody who is heavily tattooed is a degenerate drug addict or total loser. I have full sleeves, a chest piece and countless other body modifications. I'm a doctor. Yes, a doctor. And I paid my way through med school by working as an "alternative model" so I can't be that horribly repulsive. I figure if someone is so judgemental, negative & preoccupied w/ outside appearance that they can't see past my tats, then they are most definitly not worth my time & friendship!

I am a 26 year old mother with 2 boys and another baby on the way . . . And I have a tatoo on my face. Let me start out by saying that I do not and will never regret getting this tatoo. If I would have ended up regretting it wouldn't be on my face today. To those people who think if you have a tatoo like this you will never get a good job, it just goes to show you don't think much of yourself. I have a lot of great jobskills and if an employer can't look past a tatoo and see those skills they are obviously not people I want to work for anyways.

I helped design an eyebrow tattoo for my next door lady.

It is a musical key, right in the middle of her left eyebrow.

It looks terrific!

I am sorry now that I did not do that first !

Presently I am looking to design something similar for my eyebrow.

for all you people that are stereotyping everyone with tattos worry about your own lives and not someone elses who has nothing to do with you. we arnt freaks or weird or druggies we are more secure in our lives then anyoneelse we look how we want and are very comfortable with that and for everyone who says you will never find a women looking like that. well enigma you know the guy that has his whole body tatted like a puzzle and blue well he was married to katzen the tigger lady and she is sexy as hell very beautiful and great body.what you see as ugly we see as sexy and beautiful peole say if your not tottal happy with the way you look do something about it and we are . any way body modification everyone does the just don't know it body builders modify there bodys by lifting some people by booob inplants coloring your hair pieerse youe ears puttin on make up or growing a beard so before you comment on us learn what your talking about and mind your own fucken buisness leave us be and well leave you be

Erica 5 years ago

Two years ago I got my first face tattoo. My boyfriend did it himself and did a great job.

He's been after me to do a choker on my neck. I resisted him until a month ago.

I have now my neck circled with a series of flowers of every imaginable color. It is very flashy and I am not sure I like it. But my boyfriend is nust about it.

It turns him on like crazy!

A while ago I helped design a neat eyebrow tattoo for my next door lady. It was so noce that I was sorry, I had not got it myself.

Last week I got up enough nerve to have my eyes done as I had always imagined them...

Rye liner, eye shadow and two new eyebrows with my right one interupted with a musical key !!!

It is all permanent and now, when my old eyebrows grow in again I will have them removed electronically.

I look wonderfull ! I love it !

Next on the program are my lips. WE discussed already how I want it.

I'm so thrilled!

It definitely is a sensual experience to know that your face is getting tattooed. Scary, yes, but something to never forget.

I feel so sexy now !

My boyfriend is in Afghanistan yet and it will be a great surprise for him when he gets home.

He always wanted me to get some tattoos, I pleased him with a big rose on my arm with his name under it.

He loved it, now I have a bigger surprise for him !

I can't stayaway from the mirror now !!

I have a few face tattoos, some on my neck head, behind my ears, 2 sleeves, my hands, fingers, and even some on the palm of my hands. I have a normal job and live a normal life. I'm not a drug addict, criminal, or whatever else people think. I don't expect everyone to look at me the same but that's the nature of people, and it's also their choice. The thing is, I didn't get my tattoos for anyone but myself. They can say it's stupid or crazy or whatever they want, but at the end of the day I'll probably never see them again so who cares. It's my body and my choice to do it, just like it's your body and your choice not to. Some people might get tattoos for what most people consider to be stupid reasons, but it's their reason, not yours so respect them for being themselves.

Many years ago it was the privilege of a sailor who had rounded both the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn to have a red star and a blue star tattooed on his earlobe. It was, in a sense, the precursor to prison tattoos of today where a symbol has meaning of event in the outside world. Having sailed around both capes I would qualify but at my age, I believe I'll decline the honor.

Tattoos are obviously not for everyone. As someone from the deep south, tattoos used to be linked in my mind with poor white trsh, and greasy guys with beer guts. Then I got out into the real world and realized that tattoos are one of the best ways to express you're personality. People in general are so focused on stupid shit half the time, that it's nice to be able to throw the truth in their faces.

WickedxWill 4 years ago

Tattoos are one of the most passionate and permanent forms of self expression, as long as you get something for a reason. I don't recommend just jumping under the needle just for the sake of getting ink. Make sure it's really what you want. Tattoos should have a story behind them no matter what they are. They also aren't a dying fad. They are becoming more and more socially acceptable. I am heavily tattooed with a pierced septum, snakebites, and 1' gauges, and I can't count the times that random people have stopped me on the street and asked me about my work. Just keep it tasteful.

I have never yet been tattooed, but have dreamed about it just about all my life!

I guess, finally I am getting enough guts !

I'm goingto make an appointments this week !

I DID it !!!

I made the appointment personally and told him I would have some drinks first.

He advised to make it private session, so I could have a drink when I wanted it !

I have now a great big self-made design on my forehead.

I admit that I had quite a headache the next day. I still have to check my face in the mirror all day !

It is a bit scary to go outside, but I'll get used to it!

I always wanted it and now I've got it for the rest of my life !

Lizbeth, you are a girl after my own heart! Don't let anybody keep you from your dreams!

There are not many women with tattoos on theit faces, but I admire all of them!

You made a life decision and I admire you for that! I would love to see your tattoo, I bet it is smashing!

Thank you for your kind words, Gene. ust yesterday, I had enough nerve to go out to the mall. I just pretended that I didn't notice the stares. It is obvious that I can't hide my face, so I will have to get used to people staring at me.

I must admit that deep inside me, I liked it. It is, at least for me, a sensual experience !

A few years ago I told here that I had my eyebrows and eye shadow and eyeliner all tattooed ! For those who don't remember me, I had a musical key put in the middle of my left eyebrow !

My boyfriend was in Afghanistan at the time. I had my lips done red and outlined in dark red ! I have some terrific kissers now !

My boyfriend has come home again and was very enthousiatic about my looks. He simply loves it. He kicks on it !

We talked about how I felt with the new face and about getting more tattoos. I guess I am an addict now, because we went to a tattooist and had a long conversation with him.

Last year I had a forehead tattoo done in the form of a sweatband, with many colors ! I changed my hairdo, so now I have thick bangs to hide the tattoo under and can flaunt it when I (read: He !) want that !

Early this year we started on my arms. The idea is that I will have both arms with full sleeves. It is June now and both my upper arms are done, The elbows will be left free and then we will continue on from my elbows to my wrists, or even my hands. This last is not sure yet. He wants it, but I am not decided.

I like my new haircut.It is very short in the back almost like a man and from there it slopes down to level with my mouth, and straight cut bangs.

All blunt cut.

Many people I used to know don't recognize me !

I don't care. We got married last fall and I intend to do everything possible to please my husband !

He is nuts about me and I love that ! It he wants another tattoo on my face I'll certainly consider it !

Love to be loved !
