With contributions from Maeve Kierans
Considering a tattoo will be on your body, well, forever, you have to choose its location wisely. Behind-the-ear tattoos are both easy to hide and show off, which is why that's the perfect spot for ink.
Here are some of your faves who have a little something tucked behind their ears.
The small cursive “g” behind Sel's left ear reportedly stands for Gracie, her 3-year-old baby sister born in June 2013.
Adele's “A” is believed to stand for Angelo, her 4-year-old son. He inspired several of her tattoos, the most obvious being the name “Angelo” on her right hand.
While most of the behind-the-ear ink we see is on women, Bieber is also a part of the club — he has a treble clef hiding behind his left ear.
RiRi's b-day is February 20 — mark your calendars! — which makes her a Pisces. She inked the astrological sign to remind herself to check her horoscope every day. (Kidding.)
Ora has an “R” behind her left ear and a bow to represent Sagittarius behind her right one. If you’re thinking of getting an astrological sign tattooed, this seems to be the spot to consider.
This feather was Demi's second tat, which she got on a tour bus at Warped Tour. “That was just stupid,” she told MTV News back in 2012.
Speaking of Warped Tour, Hayley literally inked the word “Warped!” + a storm cloud in tribute to Paramore's many performances there — rain or shine.
Hyland gave a very free-spirited explanation for her hummingbird ink, mentioning qualities like independence, resilience, and playfulness. Into it.
Bella doesn’t go a single day without Snapchatting a cat video, so it’s fitting that she has a feline hanging out behind her ear.
Keke has joked that she’s “addicted” to getting ink. Her many tats include these interlocking hearts, a sunflower on her ribcage, an anchor on her ankle, and “Queen of Kush” pyramids on her neck.
Rose is clearly a fan of tattoos. She has four stars behind her right ear and “LOVE” written behind her left. The more the merrier!
