I’m thinking of getting a foot tattoo. But I’ve done a lot of research and I’ve found 5 good reasons to reconsider getting a tattoo on your foot that I thought I’d share to help others who are trying to decide whether to get foot tattoos or not. The 5 things I’ve learned: the pain is different (I have a high tolerance for pain, so this one doesn’t scare me), the amount of space required & tendency for foot tattoos to get blurry (a foot tattoo is one of the hardest places for an artist to tattoo well), the time it takes to heal after getting a foot tattoo (the feet require more pampering than tattoos in other places on your body), the fact that some tattoo artists won’t even tattoo feet (their reasons are eye-opening), and it’s difficult to remain still throughout the tattooing process (which could result in a messy tattoo). See more details about these and other little-known facts about foot tattoos.
