Keep it Small
One of the most important things to remember tis that the ankle is a not a very big area to get a tattoo done on. It is a small canvas so to speak so you really want to adjust the design that you are looking for to fit the space. For example a ankle tattoo is probably not the idea place to get a big Japanese print theme done. So you want to think small in the beginning and keep you ideas hovered around small designs that will work well in the area. Yes designs can be shrunk to fit better and resized to some degree. However, you don't want to shrink it down or up to much.
Not To Intricate
Another thing to carefully think about and plan ahead of getting the tattoo is you want something that is not to intricate. If you are going for a very small and complex Celtic knot work tattoo it is for sure going to fade with time and not look that hot. In fact it will end up as a big ink blob on your ankle. So keep in mind you want something that is small and not to intricate or it will turn into a blob of ink.
Lots of Color
One good thing is you can incorporate a good amount of color in the design. By using bright and strong color combinations you will make the tattoo really pop and stand out on the ankle.
