Foot Tattoos Foot Tattoos, Designs and Ideas Foot tattoos are very popular amongst women. Although some men will sport tattoos on this area of body too. But generally speaking the foot tattoos are really a womans thing. The foot is one of the most painful parts of the body to have a tattoo. This is because there is very little flesh, only skin and bone really. So my advice to tattoo virgins would be to have a first tattoo on a more fleshier part of your body first before you get one on your foot. Fleshier areas would be the upper arm, thigh, stomach e.t.c these areas are much less painful. Because on the other hand if you are someone who cannot take pain well you don't want your first tattoo to be a foot tattoo because believe me the artist will have an extra hard time giving you a really awesome tattoo if your moving around and asking him to stop every five minutes. Why are Foots a popular choice amongst females? You can easliy hide a foot tattoo within a shoe. So if a tattoo might be an issue for you at work or whatever then you could quite easliy get away with a foot tattoo. Also foot tattoos look very elegant inside a flip flop shoe or slip on shoe e.t.c. In general foots are a sexy part of a womans body, and is a perfect accessory to show off pedicure.
