#9: Inner Lip Face Tattoos

Want a face tattoo that you can hide from everyone, but those who you want to see it? Then an inner lip face tattoo is perfect for you. Inner lip tattoos take some commitment because let's face it, you are getting tattooed in your mouth. However, it's a face tattoo that if you regret, you never have to see it.

Above the eye face tattoos are becoming more popular, and part of the reasons is how good above the eye script tattoos look. The way script contours above the the eyebrow, makes above eye script tattoos one of cleanest looking face tattoo ideas.

#6: Inner Ear Face Tattoos

Inner ear tattoos are face tattoos that can be argued as "not exactly face tattoos". Whatever your opinion on the subject, no one can argue that that inner ear tattoos look awesome. And, let's be honest, if someone looks at your face they see your inner ear, making an inner ear tattoo at least the cousin of a face tattoo.

#5: Under Eye Face Tattoos

A very popular face tattoo location is under the eye. Smaller tattoos are perfect for a face tattoo under the eye, anything from symbols, numbers, or letters. Or, you can do a small image like the under eye face tattoo below.

#4: Side of Eye / Temple Face Tattoos

My personal favorite spot for a face tattoo, the side of eye or temple face tattoos look awesome. Some in the tattoo industry consider a tattoo here the "high-neck" , but for the sake of this list we have added it.

#3: Under Chin Face Tattoos

This sneaky location for a tattoo lands it on multiple body part tattoo lists. However, since it's on the chin, I think it is most at home on the Face Tattoo List. This is a great spot for a face tattoo if you want something low-key, and if you are a dude (or chick with high T) you can grow a beard to cover it.

#2: Sideburn Face tattoos

Sideburn Face Tattoos are probably the most popular face tattoo right now. They look very clean, and they can only be slightly noticeable when looking at people head on. Whether you want to get a vertical design or script, both will look great for a sideburn face tattoo.

Our #1 Face tattoos are geometric face tattoos. Geometric tattoos go great with the symmetry of the face, making these face tattoos very aesthetically pleasing. They can be placed almost anywhere, just take a look at the geometric side of head tattoo below.
