How much do you adore and take care of your feet? You might be soaking, moisturizing and massaging your feet every now and then. Why not try decorating your feet with a nice foot tattoo? For people who spends most of their time with sandals and slippers, a foot tattoo makes your precious steps adorable than ever.
The most popular locations for a foot tattoo are on top of the foot near the toes or on either sides near the ankle. You can always choose the best location where you feel like putting your tattoos on. Around your toes like that of a toe ring is not a bad idea either. Single designs like the Japanese or Chinese characters are suitable for a foot tattoo. Tribal designs can be tattooed around the ankle around the ankle resembling that of an anklet. Smaller designs like star, rose, dragon and other related tattoo designs fit the area of your ankle or foot.
Unlike the other locations, foot tattoo might feel a little harsh and more painful. Foot isn’t that fleshy enough for the needle to go through. And another thing is the foot has a lot of sensory nerve endings that are most probably prone to pain and stress. Remember, your foot is at the lower part of your body and is very vulnerable to bumps and scratches while walking. If you are not that careful enough after having a tattoo of your foot, well better prepare for several “ouch!” and “that hurts” shout outs. The healing time of the foot tattoo is quite long compared to tattoos in other parts of our body. Well, it depends on how big or how small your tattoo is. But for sure it can heal from two to five days and you are recommended to use sandals or slippers even until the last day of the healing process.
Personal hygiene is also one of your primary concerns. As long as the foot tattoo isn’t healed yet, you must keep the area clean most of the time and free from any dirt or dust. You would want your foot to rot because of a contamination. Keep in mind; tattoo is also an open wound.
Indeed, foot tattoo is also one of the convenient places to have a tattoo on. You might be working in a company who can be very strict when it comes to body tattoos. You can easily hide the tattoo with your socks or any closed shoes. So if you have decided to have one of the foot tattoo designs, better stay cool and keep still for you’ll feel the tattoo of your life.
