Tattoo on the ankle – inspiration for you and tattoos made by me

I know from experience that mainly women decide to tattoo on the ankle, they often choose floral patterns or other delicate motifs such as feathers.

Below you will find some of my completed ankle tattoos and free tattoo designs that can be done on the ankle.

If you are just looking for inspiration before your first tattoo, see my portfolio – you can find my works and projects here – on Instagram.

Does a small ankle tattoo hurt?

Basically yes, but each person’s sensitivity is different. On the ankle and foot, the skin is most often directly next to the bone, so piercing it during a tattoo may hurt more than, for example, on the stomach or other part of the leg.

Designs made on the ankle are often not very large, which is why most customers say that the pain, although it was there, did not last long

The meaning of the ankle tattoo

This is a fairly common question, my clients wonder whether to choose a design with a symbolic meaning or something simpler, more decorative.

When choosing a design, you have to think carefully because if you like it, there is a good chance that it will stay with you forever. It is true that the ankle tattoo is easy to cover, so it can be bolder if necessary, but you have to reckon with the fact that it will be more exposed in summer.
