Foot tattoos are gaining in popularity, with many people opting to get designs inked on their feet. If you are contemplating doing so, do not discount the potential issues you may face. Like any form of tattoo, there are risks involved. The pain can be extreme since it is applied over a lot of bone, which reacts to discomfort much more so than fleshy areas. Beyond that, the closeness to the ground determines that there is a much greater chance of contact with dirt and germs. Aftercare is extremely critical; the area must be kept clean, dry, and away from direct sunlight. Healing is more of a challenge since wearing shoes that may rub against the wound is prohibited.
