I’m going to visit Mushi next weekend, and one of our missions is for the two of us to get tattoos (we’ve been planning to do this for about 5 years). I have a crescent moon and stars on my shoulder already that I got about 11 years ago, and I’m ready for something new.
The new tat will be on my right ankle, and it will feature a dragonfly. I’m still deciding about the exact design, though. My first thoughts were to have an anklet, but I’m now waffling on that one. Here are a few pics I’ve found of designs that I like:
This one caught my eye because it could easily be turned into an anklet, and it would be fairly subtle. However, it’s a little cutesy, and I’m not sure that’s what I want on my ankle.

This one could also be turned into an anklet fairly easily. I’d certainly choose different colors – probably blues and purples.

But I’m now thinking I might go for a more realistic-looking dragonfly, and not make it into an anklet. Here’s one on that order:
Candidate 3 [Photo removed – 1/2014]
And now that I’m looking back through these, I’m not sure which one to choose. I think the decision is between something like the second or something like the third one. I know that the tattoo artist will make these designs his/her own, so mine won’t look exactly like these pictures, but it’s the overall style that I’m thinking about: anklet versus not and realistic versus a little cartoonish.
Any opinions/thoughts out there?
