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.

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