Over the Knee
Leg tattoos certainly aren't a new trend, but if you're not feeling the traditional approach, consider rocking an over-the-knee option.

Ankle Bone Bonus
The ankle has always been a popular spot, but with all sorts of slip-on shoes becoming popular, getting inked right in this area is a great place to add even more style alongside a trendy shoe. A small-scale design right at the side of the bone itself will definitely take your shoe game to the next level.
