I don't know about "behind the ear", but the body is full of lymph nodes. I had a lymph node on the back of my neck right at my hairline that became "calcified" as the doctor called it. It was about the size of a nickel and was not sore at all. I went ahead and had it removed though so that it wouldn't turn into anything serious later on-like cancer. Also, my surgeon said that if it was him, he would have it removed.

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.

To check for responsiveness verbally announce your presence and ask if you are OK. If they don't answer try a painful stimuli.
