Tattoos can be beautiful works of art, reminders of your biggest regrets, or a silly little doodle you just thought was darn cute. Many that have taken the plunge into getting inked have opted for an ankle tattoo, which is a sweet spot for a few reasons.
First, it’s small enough that it’s pretty easy to adjust whether or not it’s visible. Second, who doesn’t love the idea of paying to have a needle jab you thousands of times per minute right on top of your bone?
And third, maybe it’s been a while since 5th grade summer camp, and you feel a bit bare in the absence of braided anklets. Or maybe you’ve looked at the cats on your socks and thought, “you look like you could use a lil buddy.” In any case, ankle tattoos are a great way to express yourself.
So whether you want to pay respect to something important to you, or you just want to suggest to your podiatrist that you’re a little dangerous, here are 25 ideas to inspire your next ink.
