The Attraction of Foot Tattoos

August 16th, 2010

The tattoos of today are vastly different in style and placement to those of the old days. These, and the ability to create a truly unique design, are the reasons that foot tattoos are considered one way to express your individuality. Ultimately it is only you that will decide exactly what kind of tattoo you will have and where on your body you will place it.

But remember, what you consider the best design style and placement of tattoo may not be the best for other people. Choosing the right design and location is going to be difficult if this is your first tattoo, with this in mind it might be worth considering a foot tattoo as they are becoming increasingly popular.

Here are some facts about foot tattoos:

Foot tattoos are typically more painful: Because your feet are less fleshy than other parts of your body the skin on the foot is closer to the bone. The closer the skin is to the bone the more painful the tattoo will be. However, because feet are a smaller body part the tattoos tend to be smaller, the time spent in pain should be less as a result.

Foot tattoos are less obvious: Depending on where you work visible tattoos may not be acceptable, and you must always think of whatever future job or career changes may become available. Unfortunately, tattoos are not typically considered professional looking. If you choose a foot tattoo, and eventually get a professional job it will be very easy to conceal.

However, you need to remember that while healing it is recommended that you wear open shoes for the entire time. It usually takes between 2-3 weeks for a foot tattoo to heal but if it is absolutely required that you wear shoes, then it is advisable that you wear 2 pairs of light socks.

A tattoo on your foot is often considered sexy: Of course opinions will vary on what type of tattoo looks good on other people and even people who generally do not like tattoos seem not to mind foot tattoos and even find them attractive.

Foot tattoos may require more frequent touch-up work: Your feet are often exposed to harsher conditions than other parts of your body, after all you spend all day standing on them and after some time the ink on your foot tattoo may spread out and make the tattoo look blurry.

Popular foot tattoo designs: Star designs, words, and flowers. Of course you can work with your tattoo artist to create a unique and interesting design if you want something more than the usual type of foot tattoo images. Just remember the larger and more intricate the design the more painful the tattoo will probably be, and the more it will cost.
