Deathly Hallows Ankle tattoo

Recommended Posts

I was looking to get the deathly hallows symbol about the size of a quarter on my low ankle.


The question is:

I wrestle in college. Would I be able to wrestle on monday if I got it tonite (thursday)... Obviously you're supposed to wait, but I mean with the simplicity and size I thought that might play a factor. I have a few very large tattoos already and know how to care for them. I would cover it well while wrestling. Wash and tend to it appropriately.

Would getting it today and starting working out again monday cause it to look deformed or infected with those things considered? Or am I straight to get it today :1_grinning: ?

You can do just about anything with that tattoo and it'll be fine. Won't hamper your abilities at all and as long as you wash it after you're done, it should be fine.

Your bigger concern should be how terribly tattoos age in that spot. Your socks and shoes will constantly be rubbing it, and within a year it'll probably be faded to almost nothing. Good application in that spot is difficult too, so if you get an inferior artist who doesn't do it properly, you're even more screwed. I would strongly suggest getting that almost anywhere else, even just moving it up higher on the ankle would help.

It's up to you where it goes ultimately and how much you're prepared for touching up. Some people don't care and get whatever wherever, some people really want to factor in aging and make sure the tattoo looks good in years to come. I'm just saying to be prepared for that spot to not hold ink. I would ask the artist you're planning on going to where he thinks a viable location would be if you're trying to avoid fading.

    • So the tattoo I have is a fairly small-med size on my sternum and currently I have a saniderm on and taking a week's rest and my artist said I could take it off after 4 days.  I was thinking when I go back  because I wear a sports bra. Do I put tegaderm back on just in case? Or by a week it's okay to leave it. Same question for my rib tattoo which got a touch up before I got my sternum. Do I put tegaderm on for the week that I start the gym or its fine for a sports bra and sweating now. A little more context I do mostly weights and functional workouts.
    • After taking the wrapping and bandages off. It’s complete, however you can tell the areas that have healed versus fresh ink. Looking forward to it completely healing and settling in.   Hard to get the whole thing in one picture. I’ll get better ones once healed.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk  
    • I could see this working with the right artist. Right white blue, and then for the ducks green brown blue (depending on the type). I'd be less worried about the colors than the amount of imagery/number of images. Generally less is more. But I could totally see a flag rip on the upper arm, and a duck/water OR baseball scene on the lower. All three on one arm (if I've read you correctly) seems really difficult. Everything's down to finding the right artist though.
