It hurts getting a tattoo period. I have one at the top of my back, and the most painful thing for me was my muscles tensing closer to the sides of the back. Other then that, no it's really not bad. Definitely worth it

Which tattoo spot would hurt more -- behind ear or right below hairline on top of neck?

Neither one will be pleasant. Consider something: Every tattoo that has ever been put on anyone in the 5000-year history of tattooing hurt, and every tattoo that has ever been done stopped hurting very soon after it was done. Would you rather have a tattoo behind your ear or one below your hairline on top of your neck? Then that's the one to get.
