40 Elegant Foot Tattoos

According to many ink lovers, feet are among the most painful places to tattoo, because of the numerous nerve endings.

Foot tattoos are also making one of the most stylish placements, both for women and men. A good tattoo on the foot or the ankle can be very sensual, aesthetically pleasing and also discreet. 

It is an easy place to tattoo too, allowing the artists to be as creative as they want to and every kind of design and style is doable on feet. Size is also your fancy: a small cute tattoo or the beginning of a full leg sleeve. But beware: the rubbing of the shoes could wipe off ink, so if you wish to keep your foot tattoos for a long time, avoid tattooing the sole and edges.
If you are not afraid by pain and think your feet are worth some decoration, check these 40 various beautiful ankle and foot tattoos by artists across the whole world.
