Head tattoos, designs that can work

Head Tattoos

We have spoken on other occasions about tattoos on cabeza, a very special type of tattoo for being one of the most painful places to get tattooed, as well as complicated, mainly because of the shape of the skull.

Today, however, we will focus on how to find a design that can work for us based on the location of the cabeza in which we want to get tattooed.

On the sides

All Head Tattoos

The designs on the sides of the head, that is, those that go up through the ears to the top, are usually one of the most popular when tattooing this area of ​​the body. By having the ears as "context", there are many designs that can work. In addition, the vertical and flat shape also conditions when choosing one piece or another.

For example, in this place the heads of animals, flowers, mandalas or geometric designs are wonderful. For a smaller sized tattoo, the back of the ear is mostly chosen.


We understand by the upper part the entire part of the head that goes from the forehead to the neck. Seen from above, this place has a rounded shape, which is used when designing with pieces that are also rounded (either because they have a round frame or because they are like that, such as plates, flowers ...).

Back Head Tattoos

Another option is for the design to "spill over" and encompass the entire head, as in the case of some complicated pieces that take advantage of the shape of the head to develop a theme. or to combine different tattoos that were previously made with the same style.

The back part

Finally, the back of the head also accommodates many types of head tattoos. Along with the side, it is a very popular place, which supports many types of design due to its shape and vertical position. Animals, plants, geometric designs and even eyes (although these give a rather disturbing result) are good options for this part of the body.
