Makeup Tips For Stylish Tattoos
Ankle Tattoo Designs
One of the appealing aspects of an ankle tattoo is that it is generally smaller and can be placed discreetly. You can show it when you want to and use a cosmetics concealer to cover it up when you don’t.
Covering up tattoos becomes much easier when you are working in a smaller area and there is less skin discoloration to begin with. While you might want it to show when you’re at the beach, or a fantasy festival, you might just want to conceal it at the office. That’s right, just quickly hide your fairy tattoos from sight.
Just because it is in the foot area doesn’t mean that you’re limited in the matter of design choices either. You could opt for a flower, star, or even a custom design.
Makeup Tips For Tattoos
If you’re thinking about wearing any design permanently, why not try it out with a printable tattoo? Another option is to create a design with makeup. Here’s how:
- Use a gel eyeliner pen with a fine tip to outline your design.
- Draw a freehand design or use a stencil for the outline.
- For flower tattoos you can fill in the petals with lipstain pen in every color from the lightest pinks to the darkest berry red shades.
- Draw a bow tattoo by using a lip stain pen in a red shade, then outline with black eyeliner.
The advantage to using makeup in designing tattoos for any area of your body is that you can simply wash them off. What if you want an intricate flower design like a rose tattoo that lasts longer? Try a temporary flower tattoo. They come in some wonderful designs and you can even cut out the petals and stems and create one of your own.
Star Ankle Tattoo
Some women are in love with the stars. A small smattering of stars is perfect for feet and ankles. The design is simple, yet elegant. Because the stars are so tiny it will make them easier to cover up with makeup if you desire.
Tattoos in the shape of a star look best if there is one single star or several small stars of varying sizes. You’ll find that if you want to do this with makeup first then stencils work best for accurate straight lines. You can also find these in temporary tattoos.
Take your time when considering an ankle tattoo and just as with any other permanent makeup, try it in a semi-permanent form first. Then work with a professional tattoo artist to have the designed personalized for you. Afterall, tattoos are about beauty for life.
