Tattoos have always been considered a selective art. This is mainly because not everyone can withstand the process of getting one. However, today it is becoming more and more accepted. Nowadays, you can even get them being done on your feet. In fact, foot tattoos are rapidly becoming very popular even in women. The number of beautiful designs for the feet are also increasing. However, it still is something to be cautious about. The process of getting foot tattoos is still mostly similar to getting ordinary tattoos. Pain and other factors are greatly affected by the t design you want to get. To give you an idea, here are some of the things you should consider when choosing the best designs for your feet.

In fact, the general rule in tattooing is: the closer it is to the bone, the more painful the region will become. This is exactly the case with foot tattoo designs. So for those planning to get one, avoid the designs that reach the toes because they will hurt a lot. Greater Chance of Ink Migration Ink migration is common in all tattoos. However, there is a greater incidence of ink migration with tattoos on your feet. This simply means that you have to be prepared to go back and have your foot tattoo re-inked if needed. If you are choosing between several foot tattoo designs, choose something that will not easily be ruined by ink migration, or something that would be cheaper to re-ink than other designs.

Usually it takes only around two to three weeks for an ordinary tattoo wound to recover if it does not get rubbed. However, this is not the case for tattoos on your feet. Basically, depending on the placement of the design, this may mean that you can't wear shoes or socks for the whole duration that your healing. Also, the proximity of foot tattoos to the ground make these tattoos prone to infection, which is why people are advised to keep their feet clean and moist most of the time.
