Get Cool With Unique Ankle Tattoos!

Nov 13, 2007
Tattooing has developed into a modern art form. People all over the world recognize its craze among the youth across the countries. The young people are in tremendous hurry to visit the tattoo artists and get their favorite designed tattooed on their bodies.

The tattoos give the youth a definite "cool" look! All parts of the body can be the targets for tattoos. However, the extent of pain depends on the part of body. Some like the arms, back, lower back are favored areas. One need not be too surprised to find a lady proudly displaying a virgin tattoo on the ankle of her long sleek leg. It surely gives a unique look to her and the ankle tattoos thus are the talk of the town.

But a large number of people do not know the exact options of ankle tattooing. They fail to understand the extent to which the tattoo can be made on an ankle. When they are made on the upper part of the ankle, the ankle tattoos are less painful. But if you have it done right on the bony part of the ankle, be prepared for more pain. Hence it is advisable to go in for the smaller tattoos that avoid the bony part. On the upper part of the ankle because of more fleshy structure, you can have bigger tattoos. So the common mistake made by people is selecting the wrong size for of tattoo design for the ankle region. Do remember that it will be more painful if the tattooing is attempted directly on the bony surface.

Also remember that ankle tattoos remain for life. If they are made too low on the ankle, the wrinkles that appear over the years can make the tattoo go out of shape. Therefore, the calf region is best suited to have bigger tattoos for longer time since this region does not get wrinkles as fast. Consequently, the ankle tattoos also last longer.

People sometimes think that ankle tattoos bleed less. They are wrong. Bleeding here is more because they are at the end of the body circulatory system. It pays to be extra careful while getting your ankle tattooed. You must use a properly reclined chair so that the tattoo artist can get a good view of your ankle. You must also avoid walking long distances immediately after getting tattooed, to minimize bleeding.

Post tattooing care. It is vital to protect your ankle tattoos till they heal thoroughly. Along with the pain, there is also a possibility of ink running if rough, hard clothing rubs against the tattooed surface.

Boots are out for the first few days. In addition, avoid direct sunlight on the ankle tattoo as the sunlight can fade the tattoo. Sunscreen with SPF 15 can help in reducing the effect of the sun rays.
