I love the look of tattoos that lead to the groin area. That go over the hip bone. But once I was told that they were pretty much the equivalent of a tramp stamp. Is this a popular opinion that tattoo's there aren't a social norm? Do tattoo's even take well there? if you had it extend through your pubic hair area does the growing hair make it heal/fade differently?
Some tattoo artists have a vague policy against it because sketchy customers, and some artists I wouldn’t want within a mile of my lady parts. But I don’t think the hair would mess it up in any way, similar to a head tattoo.
In reference to the tramp stamp: that’s stupid. The [tramp stamp] is just a way to discourage women from getting tattoos or make them feel bad about their bodies.
If a tattoo makes you feel attractive or sexy, that’s what matters. Your body, your rules. Just make sure it fits well with the over all shape of your body and works with your curves—not against them. A good artist would be able to plan this out no problem, but a bad artist could make you really unhappy with that really awesome part of your body.
hi! I love your blog and I was wondering what is your opinion on foot tattoos on guys? I feel like I'm going to get the "your body, your choice"response but I'm still curious. I was also wondering if you could get a tattoo over a body part you can't feel, I had a major accident this summer and it's caused me to lose all feeling and control if my foot, can I still get a tattoo on it?
Feet have no gender. No body parts, outside of genitals, really do. If you get a lower back tattoo, hip tattoo, or wrist tattoo you’ll probably feel some pressure from d-bags, but really. Who up and decided only certain genders can get tattoos in certain places? It’s total crap. Tattoo your feet!!!!!!
And tattoos only effect the dermis. I went to high school with a kid who was nearly fully paralyzed and now has full sleeves. A friend of mine has a metal rod implanted in her back because of a birth defect and she has a tattoo on that same back.
Basically, the only time you wouldn’t be able to tattoo a certain part of your body is if you had no skin there—and even then you can tattoo over scar tissue!
What do you think of feet tattoos that are facing toward the owner of the feet, or basically upside down to the rest of the world? Is your opinion the same as upside down wrist tattoos?
It’s not my opinion. It’s a rule in most of tattooing. It just looks super dumb to anyone who has to see it.
Do foot tattoos work better if the person who got them wears flip flops and open shoes more than they wear socks and closed shoes?
Yup. You just don’t want things runlbbin’ against it.
you mentioned that tattoos on the side of your foot fade quickly, but that they tend to "stick" better when they're on top of your foot. do they still have a lot more wear & tear than, say, a shoulder tattoo? or is that a relatively worry-free spot? asking because i like the look of top-of-foot tattoos.
They ware faster than elsewhere, yes, but thats not to say you shouldn’t get one. Just be conscious of that and get a big, bold design that will last.
If someone found an idea for a tattoo that they really wanted and that would fit in well theme-wise with a sleeve but couldn't physically fit without being too small, would you recommend scrapping the idea, going with the smaller image, or moving the design to a different body part if they really wanted it? For example, some sort of bird with his wings outstretched wouldn't fit on someone with skinny arms lol. Should they move to say the leg, or just forget it? Thanks!
Well a good artist can make it fit where you want it. The outstretched arms thing, your artist could make them open into more of a V shape (opening up) verses just straight across.
Go to your artist, find out what they think, then go home and think about it. In some circumstances you should be able to have your cake and eat it too.
