The ankle is a very delicate part of the body, and for that reason is considered to be very sexy and feminine. And that’s especially so as it’s concerned with females of our species. Wherever tattoo styles may fluctuate from generation to generation, the ankle has always been and will most likely continue to be a popular location for a woman’s tattoo. And if you have any doubts as to the popularity of ankle tattoos, all you have to do is look at the entertainment section of your favorite online publication. There you will find dozens of models, actresses and other celebrities who have chosen the ankle and the lower leg as the spot for the favorite design. Because the size of the ankle is small, the tattoos placed there often tend to be small as well. They include designs such as hearts, stars, butterflies or vines. Ankle tattoos work well because they can be flaunted at will. A classic pair of shoes, from high heels to sandals will set off a clean and graphic design. The shoe attracts attention to the tattoo, and the tattoo to the shoe. The result is a sexy fashion statement, especially if it’s understated.
As small and petite as ankle tattoos may look they tend to be some of the more painful tattoos one can get. Make no mistake, we’re not talking about extreme pain here at all. It’s just that it is a little more painful than a tattoo one may get on a fleshier part of the body. It is also somewhat difficult to find a pose to strike and hold while the tattoo artists works on your ankle. It’s just a strange position to be in and it can get uncomfortable. And remember that the skin around your ankle has a tendency to wrinkle and droop when you get older much more than other skin on your body. Which of course can distort the view of your tattoo.
Those are some of the reasons not to get ankle tattoos but if you are still thinking of doing it, here are some reasons in favor of them. First of all, they are cool and that is probably the biggest part of getting a tattoo for anyone. Most times people who get ankle tattoos do it in a way where it looks like they are wearing a piece of permanent jewelry and that makes perfect sense. Like a little ankle bracelet for instance.
