From finger tattoos to watercolour inkings, and minimalist shapes to statement colours, we’re constantly on the lookout for the next big tattoo trend.

And – if the cool kids on Instagram are anything to go by – the latest inkings set to go viral on social media are helix tattoos.

Small and dainty inkings that adorn the top half of your ear, otherwise known as the helix, think of this trend as an upgrade to the cartilage piercing you got in sixth form.

See below for some of our favourite images so far, and prepare to be inspired...
