They're fun. They're discreet. They're sexy. Cute foot tattoos are trending hard right now, and I'm not mad about it. After all, there's something super cool about adorning your feet with some fabulous ink. Only select people are privy to your footsie ink, which is great if you work in a super corporate environment or are trying to keep you ink under wraps. I, personally, eschew work that doesn't appreciate a good flip-flop, but that's just me.
And it's not just a trend for mere mortals. Celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Richie, and Rihanna have inked their feet. (Seriously, have you seen the rosary tat that encircles Richie's ankle and lies on her foot? Quite possibly one of my fave celeb tats ever.) But before you commit to inking your foot, there are a couple disadvantages for people who want to follow this on-trend tat. The blog Rattodo reported that, "the rubbing of the shoes could wipe off ink, so if you wish to keep your tattoo for a long time, avoid tattooing the sole and edges." And according to Dr. Oz's blog, there are over 7,000 nerve endings on each foot, so expect for a foot tattoo to sting a bit. But, like the saying goes: no pain, no gain. If you're looking to add a little ink to your step, consider one of these cute foot tattoos from A-listers and average human beings as inspiration.
