Tattoo drawing/idea request

Hello!

So, I'm planning on getting a tattoo in a few months.

I've been thinking about it for awhile and I even have a little horse penned on my ankle to see if it's going to get old.

What I want is just a simple outline of a horse. It can be jumping, trotting, cantering, etc. Really anything, although I don't know if I'd like a standing horse.

It will be small and on the inside of my ankle, probably no more than 1.5" tall.

This is the idea I'm liking, although I'd want it solid and not broken.



Like these, but without the facial features or muscle shading.



If anyone wants to give it a go I'd be very grateful! Feel free to be creative, I'd love to see different ideas. Also, if anyone has any other suggestions I'm open to anything!

Thanks!

I really like the horses you have picked out, they are simple but pretty. That might be really bold though, to have it all black. Perhaps you could get it done like in the pictures and later on if you decide you want it darker you could have it filled in? It might look totally different on and you might decide you don't want it filled in! :)

I'm actually planning on leaving it open and not having it filled in, unless of course I get it done and it looks weird.
What I meant by "solid" was, see how on the first picture the horse has "gaps" on its neck and legs? I would want the lines to be solid. Sorry, the wording was a bit confusing!

Thanks!

I like that first image you put up as well, seems like it would be simple and perfect for a small size tattoo.

If I was not such a chicken I would love an anklet tattoo!
Do you have a very high threshold for pain? My friend was going to get one on her ankle as well, the tattoo parlor actually talked her out of it, said it is probably the most painful spot....

I went browsing through some of my favorite clip art stuff, found a couple.
Hope they might at least give you some ideas?

Don't know if you'd want a foal? Thought this one would look great simplified into just the outline as well.

Hope you post a pic once you get it, love to see what you decide on!

I think either would be be nice without the inside lines

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

Thank you so much, guys!

I have a relatively decent pain tolerance....I suppose we'll see.
