Covering the lower portion of the body from the upper thigh down, leg tattoos are a spectacular way to showcase your movable gallery.
Like the arm, the lower leg is an accommodating canvas for your sleeve or freestanding tattoo of choice, with a cacophony of designs to choose from.
Leg tattoos have been worn by men and women since the dawn of time, most commonly applied to male warriors and shamans as a form of ancestral protection and storytelling. And because many tattoos were intended to correlate to a targeted region of the body, leg tattoos often carried messages and prayers for speed, strength, and endurance.
Men are often drawn to leg tattoos for their versatility and flow: such tattoos are often concealed but impossible to ignore once revealed. Portrait style tattoos displaying a loved one, as well as symbolic animals, tribal emblems, and biblical and literary verses are all traditional leg tattoo choices.
Some prefer a design that winds its way around and up the leg, such as a classic dragon or banner with inscription, while others prefer a pronounced piece worn on the calf.
Great or small, a leg tattoo is an unforgettable piece of walking art.
