When we think of gender specific tattoos, or feminine tattoos meant solely for girls and women, we usually conjure up the image of a delicate design -- flowers, or butterflies, perhaps -- located on a body part like the lower back, the bikini line or breast, the wrist or perhaps the ankle. And for good reason. The ankle is a delicate part of the body, and for that reason, very sexy, and uniquely so to the female of our species. Wherever tattoo styles wander, the ankle is likely to remain an attractive and popular patch of the human canvas for tattoos for girls.
But, hey, don't take our word for it. Look where many -- if indeed, not most -- models and actresses have placed their tattoos - on the lower leg or ankle. A working girl can't afford to alienate her client by getting tattoos that can't be easily covered up. Likewise, a young woman might not even want to upset her mother, in which case, a small tattoo on the ankle is relatively easy to keep hidden, at least until you graduate from high school, at which point, you've earned some respect and credibility. Some girls derive power - even erotic power - from a hidden tattoo, in which case, the ankle is a good option.
