Points to Consider

★ Foot tattoos are painful as the skin on this part of the body is very thin and close to the bone.
★ These tattoos also require a great deal of aftercare.
★ Because of their position on the body, they may fade after a few years, thus, requiring a touch up.
★ Foot tattoos are susceptible to infection during healing, as they are exposed to water, sweat, dirt, and sunlight.
On the bright side, foot tattoos look very attractive and feminine. They can be concealed very well by wearing socks, boots, or other fully covered shoes. One should always discuss the design thoroughly with the tattoo artist.
Another thing to keep in mind is to follow the instructions provided by the artist, as this will make sure that the tattoo heals properly and stays fresh for a long time.
