    My girlfriend says she's getting me a tattoo for christmas... I know that's not very soon, but I've been playing with ideas for a while. I think what I want is a winged shoe (We're both track and field nerds... pole vault specifically). I was thinking about getting something like one of these on my shoulder blade or the outside of my lower leg:

    Then I had an idea. Skip the shoe, and just the wing on the outside of my lower leg, starting at my ankle, so it's like I'm wearing the winged shoe. I've been looking online, and can't find anything like it. Think it would be possible and look good?

    Have the wing extend from the Ankle?? that would look fantastic and very representative of what you are into.

    Yes, that is the kicker... I'm not sure if i'll want wings on my legs when i'm older. I like the idea so much though.

    Sounds like a great idea...whatever you do, take the next 6-7 months to find a fantastic artist whose style you like- even if you don't get the tattoo. That way you are educated on what kind of stuff you can get and won't regret getting a mediocre tattoo...if you are going to have it forever, get the best you can.

    I dunno. The way I look at tattoo's is that they represent me at that particular time in my life. If I find something I like I wait about 6 mo to make sure I am still in love with the idea, then I get it ;)

    I agree with PE, the ankle extending off the bone would be awesome! Is this your first tat though?

    I will look into artists and try to find a design I like. For the idea with the shoe, and without.


    yes.

    in my experience, single wings without a source included in the tat end up looking really out of place. I suggest getting it with the shoe, if you did, that would be tight.

    I think the wings themselves tattooed on his ankles would be f-ing sweet. :)

    Im sitting here thinking about them, and they could be cool. its a risk, but so are all tattoos. bottom line, do it if you like it.
