If you like the foot tattoo in this picture then you might want to run out and get one done right away. But, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind first. Foot tattoos must be cared for in a certain way. Especially as they are healing. Foot tattoos are more likely to become infected then other locations on the body, which is another reason why some tattooist are reluctant to do them. Your new foot tattoo needs to be kept clean, dry and free from any dirt particles. You have to be especially careful to not let anything that will irritate it come into contact with it. This means that shoes or socks are not to be worn, or worn only occasionally if at all possible for at least a couple of weeks after the tattoo has been inked. This will allow your foot tattoo to lose any of the swelling it may have. Plus, you have to remember that if a tattoo is being constantly rubbed then the ink can come out of it until it heals. So, extra precautions and forethought has to be put into it before you even get the ink flowing.
It is usually women who are interested in foot tattoos, but personally, I think they look pretty cool on guys too. That is if they choose the right type of design. I would think the first thing you should do is choose a design that best reflects your own personality and style. But you do want to make sure to take your time so that you don’t make a mistake. One of the most typical mistakes is people getting something that is so trendy that in ten years it looks silly and it gives away your age. Some people may not care about that but I know that others certainly do.
The most common foot tattoos on the top of the foot but some people actually choose to get their foot tattoos put on the bottom of their feet. I am not really sure why as that seems it would be very painful and much harder to heal and of course, very few people are ever going to see it. Not to mention that a tattoo on the bottom of the foot will not have as much color nor near as much detail as one on the top of the foot.
