Men might opt for large, wrap-around tattoos as the calf itself is the perfect shape for them. Tribal tattoos work well in this area as well (as a tattoo on the front of the leg as well as a back or side of calf tattoo). Some might choose to start a tattoo on the calf and extend it down to the ankle as far as the foot. Other calf tattoos might just be a small logo or design on the calf for a simple calf tattoo.

Women might also opt for large, elaborate calf tattoos, though many choose a more 'delicate' looking tattoo design - a floating butterfly or a vine of flowers, for instance. Celebrities like Jenna Elfman have tattoos at the base of the calf (hers is a wound arrow). Many other women choose tattoos that extend from the calf to the ankle (such as trails of flowers and/or stars).

    Who doesn't love tigers? Whether you go for a small version of the giant cat or opt for a giant tiger face as your calf tat, you're going to look pretty rad with a snarling beast to welcome everyone to your calf. Oh, and if you're feeling more like a lion tattoo vibe, Simba is a wicked calf tattoo choice for the ladies and the gentlemen. You could even get a cliff done up the back of your calf and have a whole scene from the The Lion King playing out back there. Super sweet.

    Just as the tree expands at its greatest height with branches and leaves, the calf has its widest point at the top making a tree tattoo design ideal. Your tree themed calf tat will make great use of the area on the calf should you choose to do a full back of the calf tat.
