Tips on Getting Sexy Ankle Tattoos

Tips on Getting Sexy Ankle Tattoos
Written by platinumcash
For many, tattoos are full-body art experiments. From complete arm sleeves to complete back pieces, tattoos can quickly grow from one to hundreds, and more often than not, they can be connected to form a complete picture, a picture that takes up almost every square inch of skin. From black to rainbows of colors, tattoos make an impact, and they make it loudly.

However, for some, such explosive impressions are not the desired result, and for these individuals, more subtly, more sexy tattoos are decided. Some of the most subtle yet most beautiful tattoos are ankle tattoos. The ankle itself is an often-forgotten part of the body, but with a tattoo, a lot of attention can be drawn to the area, and especially for women, ankles can be transformed into truly beautiful places, with truly beautiful artwork.

Bones like Birds

Both the ankle and the wrist are very fragile areas, and for women especially, much of the idea of delicacy is focused on these areas. In fact, wrists and ankles that are not long and delicate can actually be detrimental to a woman’s image. At first glance, tattoos may not seem to promote this kind of gentleness, especially when most tattoos are so large and overwhelming.

While tattoos can be rough, full of imagery of death and anger, they can also be gentle, with angels, flowing script, flowers, stars, hearts and any other number of softer things. In a way, ankles especially just beg for tattoos, because the area itself is perfect for ornamentation. Bracelets and anklets help to draw attention to nicely-shaped ankles and wrists, and also help to accentuate the length of legs or hands. So in a sense, ankle tattoos become another kind of jewelry, wrapping around the areas like permanent jewels.

Ankle tattoos, therefore, are often bands of some sort that wrap completely around the ankles. Tribal tattoos are popular choices but so are religious symbols such as prayer beads or rosaries. Even chains, pearls, wires or other string-like designs can be tattooed around ankles. However, some ankle tattoos are not designed like jewelry. Some are simply small images or words that grace one side or the other, usually right above the bone, or a little lower almost on the foot. Once again, these ankle tattoos draw attention to the area. The area itself is small, and therefore so are the tattoos, and while they may be noticed from afar, individuals will have to get a little closer to truly discern the image or the words.
