i have a tattoo on the top of my foot and it was the most painful thing i've done to myself, and i have numerous tattoos and piercings. in fact, it's supposed to be colored in, but the pain was so intense i only have the outline done. some day i'll get it colored in, but i have to build up the courage.

pain tolerance depends on each individual person, but man does that area hurt! and i have a high pain tolerance!

I have both my feet tattooed. I have a peacock feather on my left foot and a lotus with purple mist and butterflies on the right one. I love them. It's a bit weird when you get the tattoo done as the nerves are so close to the top it feels like your foot is moving. It does hurt, not so much that it stopped me from doing them.

I have to note I got mine during flip flop weather. I would not advise wrapping it and putting tennis shoes on. My suggestion would be to wear shoes that expose the area as much as possible. As to exercise, I exercise barefoot so that was never an issue for me.

Hope that helps. There is a pic on my sparkpage that has one of my foot tattoos.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Awesome! Are you getting your foot or inner wrist done? I would love to get one on my inner wrist but I don't know what I want and something in that spot HAS to be just perfect. I am so in love with foot tat it's kinda freaky!!!=)) I even kiss him every now & then! NO REALLY! I DO!;)) I was thinking maybe an anchor for my Dad that died in '96 OR an ankh. I like the ankh because of what it signifies to me. I just can't my girl to do something REALLY tiny. Like my should tats were supposed to be half as big as they are. I get they had to be bigger cuz of the detail. But a simple thing should be able to be tiny. I have a hard time with simple! I LOVE DETAIL!!! Any ideas?

A friend & I are going at the same time, and she's redoing the one already on her foot as well as adding an inner wrist tattoo. Too funny that you guys mentioned them both! :-)

I love the idea of both those places. I too need to decide what to get. Especially on the wrist cuz it would be visible ALL the time!

I have pretty large, color tattoos on my feet and they were the most painful of all my tattoos ( i have a full sleeve and a few on my legs as well) . At least you're only planning on getting one!
They are great tattoos though and I constantly get compliments on them :-)

STERBERGER,
Hi. Also you can do some SP videos that do burn calories and not wear shoes. I do the 20 min. dumbbell workout shoeless and SP calculates the calorie burn for you. It's quite high and you'll be working every part of your body. You DON'T HAVE to use weights if you don't have them at this point. Also the 15 min. ABS video is AWESOME! SP does the cals. on that one too. In the cardio section of your fitness tracker. I do these over and over some days that I don't feel like walking or running! emoticon emoticon

TIPY- I say go for it then when you have the play money!!! :)

STERBERGER- I just made sure to wear thick socks and put a sterile pad over it when I needed to wear tennis shoes. If its not necessary to wear them, then yeah let it breathe! But I was at work wearing tennis shoes and hour after mine...and I just kept it moist and thickly covered at that point :)

My next tattoo in planning is one on the tops of my feet and I'm kinda nervous about it! My only current tattoo is a small one on my wrist, which I don't think hurt too bad at all, but relatively I'm not too sure what to expect! I moved since my last tattoo, so I'm meeting a new artist for this one.

What I'm most concerned with is aftercare - will I be completely immobilized for a period of time? How will I keep up with my exercise (work out in flip flops? lol) ? Is July/August a bad time to get a foot tattoo? I've heard it's recommended to keep the area uncovered for the first 3 months.

Any advice, ladies?

emoticon girls!

KENDRATIME2011, NO!!!! It's NOT SICK! I LOVE the feeling of being tattooed!!! I get really relaxed and have to talk or be talked to or I might nod off. SERIOUSLY! My artist is funny, thank goodness. She is very young but I think she's VERY talented for being not quite 25 yet!!! So, all in all it's a crap shoot. I have experienced pain yet except when I 1st got my anklet done by an idiot who went too deep and really used me as a practice pad! The girl I go to now did her best to fix what she could. I don't hate it it's just I see what SHE could have done for me!!! All part of the experience though. I know she'll stop if I ask her to to take a break but I'm one of those who once you get going with something that's uncomfortable just do it and be done with it. I do that with my intervals on my treadmill. Instead of DRAGGING it out I just push through it and get it done. I don't mean hurriedly just don't make it last longer than it has to. You know? So, thanks again & when & if I get it done I will be sure to post it on the team photo page and tell y'all how it went. It will be while as my girl is out of town for a while and I don't have any play money right now anyway! LOL!:))

I'm a bad judge of it all because I enjoy the pain of a tattoo...yeah, sick I know...haha

But my start directly on the top of my foot wasn't too bad. In all my experiences, I've realized the more flesh there is the more it hurts. So that part of the body being fairly flesh free, it wasn't too bad.

My next one, in the planning stage, is also for the top of my foot. I mentioned, in front of my artist, that I was scared of the pain involved with it, and he said with the ink I already have, I'll do fine & have no problems. Mind you, I've already got the lower back & on my spine between my shoulder blades done ... but he thinks I'll do okay. Good Luck!

OK, I have some time to think about it but I am seriously thinking about getting a gecko on the top of my right foot to go with the 3 around my ankle. However this one is realistic looking with big eyes and just SO cute I WANT TO SEE HIM A LOT. I can't see putting him on my back. BUT! Honestly HOW BAD IS THE PAIN???!!! So far the only discomfort I've had in all my inking is after about 4 or more hours of it. Then it was just like if I had been itching in the same place too long. Not REALLY pain. Even My artist said hers was like a knife cutting into her foot! I have NO fat there. I can see all the bones leading from my toes all the way back to where it bends at the ankle!!! I'm pretty tough but it's new territory! PEASE TELL ME about your experiences. GOOD AND BAD!

THANK YOU!!
