Anklet Tattoos

Updated on January 12, 2012

What to Expect When Getting an Anklet Tattoo

Getting an anklet tattoo is a fun and flirty tattoo. It is a favorite among women because it looks really pretty especially with flip flops. There are many things that go into considering why and where to get a tattoo. I don't think there's a wrong place to get a tattoo, it's strictly a personal choice ! The ankle is a very sensitive area to get a tattoo because of the bone being right beneath the skin. If you've never gotten a tattoo or don't have a very high tolerance for pain, you want to make sure you can handle it. There are products that will numb the skin before a tattoo to help with the pain. Another thing to consider is the time of year you get your tattoo. You don't want to get an anklet tattoo in the Winter if you have to wear socks that will rub and irritate it as well as possibly get fibers from the socks. You also have to be careful in Summer time because of the sun which can harm your tattoo.

What to Avoid After Getting a Tattoo

If you get an anklet tattoo, make sure it's at a time when you won't be in water like a pool, lake, or ocean. It is imperative to the proper healing of your tattoo ! You also must stay out of the sun. It will irritate your tattoo as well as fade out the colors or black ink that was used.

Tattoos and Jobs

The nice thing about an anklet tattoo is you are able to cover it up with socks, shoes, or boots. Always keep in mind that depending upon your occupation, you may need to be able to cover it up. Even though tattoos are pretty mainstream, many businesses still require them to be covered to be employed there.

First and foremost, get what you love ! The bottom line is you're going to have this tattoo for the rest of your life so get one that you love. Don't settle on an OK tattoo, or one you could live with.
