Got my 2nd tattoo done yesterday and it turned out amazing. The wings are to represent Hermes winged sandals and my love of running since I am a marathon/ultra marathon runner. Then on my right ankle I have my dads name on the top 2 feathers because he is who got me into running but unfortunately passed away 2 weeks after my 1st race.
Here are the pics!
Nice idea. Imho it would make more sense if they started below the top of your shoe. Looks odd with them so far above the ankle. But what do i know. Well executed though.
Thanks! And jerry in these running shoes it looks a bit off but in my other racing shoes with socks on as well the gap is far less. When we were first placing it we tried it lower but it just didnt work, kinda hard to explain.
It would have not sat properly if it was put lower
looks great and i think the placement is in a good spot…if any lower i dont think it would have conformed to the leg properly and would have just looked odd because of the ankle bone bulging in the center of the wing.
looks awesome! I enjoy running as well but never ran a marathon (run 5k’s & 10k’s) — any issues with getting wings of mercury without running a marathon? I see several similar tattoos but it seems that they all ran a marathon before..
