foot tattoos tattooed originals

some foot care tips for a quicker healing period:
  • Wear flip flops or other open shoes during the healing process so the shoe doesn't rub against the tattoo. If the flip flop touches the tattoo, then it's advisable that you get a pair of Down Unders, a kind of topless flip flop. If you really have to wear shoes, then wear 2 pair of light socks.
  • The best time for getting a tattoo on your foot is in the summer, it might be a bit cold without shoes in the winter.
  • Roll up your trousers if they touch the tattoo.
  • Keep your new ink out of the sun.
  • Keep your feet clean. This means you have to take regular foot baths with warm water and a mild soap. Dry them by dabbing with a towel, don't rub.
  • Keep the tattoo moist by applying a good ointment (Lubriderm). Don't make it too moist or the colors will bleed.
  • Never rub the tattoo.
  • Don't swim until the healing process is over.
  • Keep in mind that walking could be difficult the first few days because of foot pain. If possible take a few days off from work.
  • Find a tattoo artist who has experience doing foot tattoos. Ask him for advice.
