“What inspired me to get tattoos to cover my scars was so whenever I was down or having a bad day, I could look down at my newly painted arm and remember that overcoming something can lead to beautiful things. My next step is to cover the scars of my other arm and my leg. It’s never easy, but by getting them covered up, it’s a little bit like closure.” — Lauren S.

The strips are focused around what it’s like to grow up in India and it already has a huge following since the artist began working on it back in June 2016.

There's a new tattoo trend that's taking over the Internet and even those set on not getting inked might just start thinking twice. It's called the helix tattoo and it's pretty awesome. The helix is the thin and curved outer part of the ear, which is now a famous spot for tattoos apparently. The new tattoo trend is all over Instagram and it looks like more and more people will be getting into it in the next few months.

Helix tattoos have a beautiful simplicity about them. Since the space to get inked is quite small, the tiny designs have to be perfect. Among the most famous designs are florals, animal prints, and minimalist details. Some of them look dainty, while some are pretty kickass. Helix tattoos are very subtle, so they are ideal for first-timers who don't want very noticeable and obvious tattoos.

With cool helix tattoos, who needs fancy earrings or ear cuffs? Below are a few Instagrammable helix tattoo photos that might just convince you to finally get inked. We seriously can't get enough of them, so enjoy!

Just take it from Martin and Michelle Bruckner of Omaha, Nebraska, parents of 5-year-old Harper Grace. Both of them work as graphic designers and, one day, Martin suddenly had the idea of drawing their daughter’s funny – and sometimes awkward -sayings.

The result, like we told you in the title above, is hilariously brilliant.
