Both feet tattoos and toe ring tattoos are gaining popularity these days. These tattoos can be fierce, cute or sexy. Feet tattoos and toe ring tattoos are convenient because you can show them off easily when wearing sandals or hide them when in the workplace. However, there are also risks associated more with these kinds of tattoos than any other. Over the next few days, will explore the new trend in feet tattoos.

Pro: Feet tattoos look great! People are really creative when they choose their feet tattoos. You can place them on top of your foot, on the bottom of your foot and even around your toes. Another benefit is that feet tattoos come in pairs. You can have the same exact tattoo on both of your feet and this only adds to the wow factor.

Con: Feet tattoos are more likely to fade This means that you may have to go to the tattoo parlor to have your tattoo re-inked. Feet tattoos are less likely to fade if they are on the top of your foot. Instead of large tattoo designs, choose small shapes and symbols to prevent tattoo blurring.

Pro: Hide or seek Perhaps the best part about feet tattoos is that they can be very visible to other people or they can remain hidden. A pair of sneakers or socks will easily conceal feet tattoos that you want to hide. During the summer, you can easily show off feet tattoos when wearing flip-flops or sandals.

Con: The healing process Since we are on our feet all day long, the healing process for feet tattoos is slower. The best time to get feet tattoos is during the warmer seasons so that you can wear flip-flops or sandals while your tattoo heals. Wearing socks or sneakers will lead to infection. Proper care is required for feet tattoos. Otherwise, you will likely get an infection.

Pro: A new and rising trend is toe ring tattoos Toe ring tattoos are a cross between a toe ring and a tattoo. It involves picking a tattoo design that wraps around your toe like a toe ring. Toe ring tattoos are very cute and are permanent. You can choose toe ring tattoos that only wrap around one of your toes like a traditional ring, or you can choose toe ring tattoos that start at your toe and work their way up the foot. Most toe ring tattoos consists of flowers and vines, but the decision is up to you! Be creative. Unlike a toe ring, you do not have to worry about taking it on and off every day. Toe ring tattoos beautify your feet while allowing you to express yourself at the same time. They also compliment your feet when you are wearing flip-flops or sandals. An added benefit to toe ring tattoos is that they are not uncomfortable like traditional toe ring jewelry. Besides the initial healing process, toe ring tattoos are relatively low maintenance. You can basically get them and forget them.

Con: It hurts! Yes, all tattoos hurt, but feet tattoos are even more painful because of the foot’s bony surface. You can opt to have feet tattoos done on the fleshy padding of your foot so it hurts less, but your tattoo will be less noticeable to the public view.

You should do your research before deciding on whether you want feet tattoos or toe ring tattoos. Feet tattoos and toe ring tattoos are wonderfully striking and easy to hide at the same time. On the other hand, these types of tattoos tend to be more painful. You will also have to endure a slower healing process and an increased risk of infection. All things have their pros and cons, so it is up to you to make the right decision.
