    Anyone here with one on your foot?
    If so how much did it hurt and what does it feel like when you're getting it done?
    Most appreciative!

    I havnt but know a few people that have, they said it hurt slighty more then a normal tattoo But then ive been told wrists hurt alot but mine didnt hurt at all!
    they werent anymore exspensive then other tattoos it depends on size and colours i think rather then body part :)

    I have tattoo's on both of my feet :D and going up around my ankle :D

    They didn't really hurt at all - just felt like mild electric shocks on the more sensitive bits but my tattooist said that i must have a really high pain threshold as most people found it quite painful especially around the ankle bone

    I'm hoping to have one on my foot in a couple of weeks, a friend has had one and she said it hurt! The only other one i've had is on my back, but only a small one! There's not much padding on foot. :)

    Thank you guys. I'm not going near my ankle so thats good. Someone at work said it was like a sharp scratch so there was me sat trying to scratch my foot for comparison! Lol. I think my pain threshold it quite good e.g. I've seen people cry who had there tragus pierced yet I was fine.
    Tuesday will be D day so I'll let you know....not that anyone is probably interested lol

    I have paws on my foot... Its a tiny pin puncturing your skin.... so it's bound to hurt a bit. You get a bit of a weird vibrating sensation in some places on your feet, but it's not bad :p

    It was the painless healing process of all the tatts i have tbh.

    If you choose your design with care it's worth the pain :thumbup:

    Yeah i had the same Ive had my tattoo's for 3 weeks now i got two done straight after each other on my wrists so they arent that bad at all. I thought they would be so painful!

    I saw my sister get one yrs ago and she cried, now i realise she was a wuss :p i had everyone say how much they hurt but really it doesnt, i think a cat stratch is much worse they only thing thats a bugger is they itch when they are healing but you cant stratch them :rolleyes: so have to put up with a itchy feeling!

    Get some savlon for when its starting to heal and bepanthen for after it stops the itch and keeps the skin fromk getting dry. :D

    yeah you can do, i covered mine with kitchen roll and taped it mainly because it bled quite abit on one, i kept it on for about 4hrs then took it off over night so the bad could get to it, it just felt bruised after

    I think you build yourself up to think its really going to hurt but when it actually happens you think huh whats all the fuss about

    Ask them to do a dry run when they put a clean dry needle over your skin and see how it feels its very good at letting you know if you can handle it

    what are you havin done??

    I used bepanthen cream on my tattoo's (its a nappy rash/skin healing cream) i tried savlon after my first sitting but had a reaction to it

    I also kept them covered with clingfilm for the first couple of days - saves clothes and bedsheets from getting messy and it wont stick to the tattooed area so it isn't painful to remove

    I've got one on my foot and it was the least painful out of them all!!
    So I say go for it!!
    Worst was lower back or chest aaargh.

    + They do put cling film on it with abit of cream but thats just for the way home, it looks like meat when its like that :p
    I always take my stuff on as soon as I get home so I can wash them, and put cream on them, also to let them have a bit of air..
