Tattoos with hand and footprint designs are surprisingly popular today.

Footprint tattoos can represent a wide variety of ideas and concepts depending on the type of footprints used for tattoos and the style in which they are represented. For example, women often choose these types of tattoos to celebrate the birth of their sons or daughters tattooing baby footprints, and often with the name of the offspring being part of the design. In this way, a footprint tattoo is not only a great way to commemorate the eternal bond between a mother and her son or daughter, but also a beautiful way to express love, care and concern for well-being, which are intrinsic concepts to this type of relationship. These types of designs usually include the date of birth of the baby.
Apart from tattoo designs with baby footprints, handprint designs are also very common. On this occasion, people often use these tattoos to represent the mark that someone has left in their lives, either with loving connotations, such as that someone with whom they have had a relationship has managed to leave them an indelible mark for life , or also in the sense of memorial of a loved one who no longer accompanies them and who want to always have them present in the form of a tattoo.
As we have said before, one of the most popular designs in this type of tattoos is that of baby footprints, which is why there are many varieties within this design. For example, the sets of footprints, for those parents who have a large family and want to express their love for each and every one of their sons or daughters. Also very common are designs with the baby's hand and foot prints, or those in which the baby's footprints represent the wings of a butterfly. As you can see, the possibilities are innumerable, after all, it all depends on the imagination and tastes of the person who wants to acquire the tattoo.
We say goodbye, but not before reminding you that, if you are interested in acquiring a tattoo, it is convenient that you do it once there is no doubt, because a tattoo is something for life, so it is advisable to go safely and, in addition , put yourself in the hands of professionals. Prevention is always better than dealing with mistakes in the future.
In this first photo, we see the traces of a baby next to the name of this little person at the top made with black letters and at the bottom, the date of his birth. In the center, the body of a butterfly has been added and by joining it to the two footprints, form a butterfly completely.
In this second image, this boy has his entire back occupied by footprints, from the lumbar to the neck but only in the central part as if someone had been walking on his back.
Footprint tattoo on another foot. You can see that there is a name in the middle of both soles of the feet and it is that the majority of people who choose these designs are in relation to other people.
They look like the two feet of a baby with the date of birth and the name. Although there may be two babies because there are two names and the prints are somewhat different. It is a good memory of the birth of the baby.
Another design with the dates, we suppose of birth, of two babies. In this case they have not been tattooed very well, since they seem stained and do not remain very defined, in addition the date does not marry well with the design, it should have been tattooed in another way.
Footprints with the name Dylan. If something must exist in the tracks when they belong to the same person it is similarity. This aspect is not found in the design that can be seen in the image.
In this case we see that the footprints have an almost rocky texture and their toes are not well represented. It is a difficult tattoo design, so we must select the tattoo artist who will carry out the work.
Simple design of a footprint with the name Courtney, in my opinion they look better when the color saturation is somewhat more transparent, so as not to make the print so obvious, but there are people who mainly look for these designs.
We can see that it is a recent design that is somewhat poorly focused, since there are only wrinkles on the soles of the feet at the top and the fingers are all the same. On the other hand, there is no consistency with the tracing of the prints and that of the names.
Several footsteps with the motto "carpe diem", which comes to say something like living the moment, the traces accompany this meaning very well, since they give the feeling that it is meant to say that you have to move forward.
Footprints on the top of this girl's esplada. The color used is not very successful, too reddish, when most of these designs have darker shades.
Good design of the prints with a well executed color, although the name would have put it elsewhere, but thanks to the good result of the prints, the color, the proportions, the well-represented folds, etc. You get a good result.
Design of two footprints with what look like several names at the top and a date at the bottom of the design. A somewhat disconcerting element in this design is that one footprint is too dark compared to the other and a balance that would give more cohesion to the final result should have been achieved.
Another human footprint on the instep of another foot, which is sometimes paradoxical, since it is a step on another footprint so it can have two meanings: on the one hand, try to keep moving forward even when someone steps on us and another, to continue progressing, the road may already be done but we can walk on it differently than it has been done so far.
Again two tracks that seem to belong to Isabella. It is very common that some fathers or mothers choose to tattoo their baby son or daughter's footprints. It is a kind of symbolism, the father or mother who tattooes him wants to make known that he will be a faithful support to his son or daughter. The design may be somewhat dark and the layout of the name a bit awkward.
Two tracks with a four-leaf clover between the two. The contrast of the green color of the clover with the black of the footprints has a good result and a new meaning is added, that of good luck on the road, the path represented by the footprints we are talking about.
Awkward design of two footprints that seem to be made by a person other than the one who has printed the baby's name and date of birth. The feet seem too elongated and very thin in the part of the heel, the result is not as expected and the paths of the feet and the name and date are completely different.
Design of two feet of another baby accompanied by the word justice, which in Spanish means justice. In my opinion, in some fingerprint tattoos the black color is saturated too much and sepia or gray colors could be chosen to soften the result and also to obtain results different from those seen so far.
Human footprints accompanied by the name Caden, which is framed in a heart in turquoise blue. The footprints, unlike in other designs, have been tattooed so that they seem to walk, so the feeling of progress is offered, of moving forward on the road.
In the case of this tattoo, it is not a design of a footprint of a baby foot, but it is that of an adult and also appears accompanied by a footprint. Unlike the baby footprint designs with the date of birth, in this case it may be the date of death but we cannot assure it with total firmness.

What does a girl think about these designs?
There are thousands of ways to express love towards another person. One that is very fashionable lately in the world of tattooing and that seems very original to me is to tattoo the footprints of a baby, usually next to his name and even date of birth. I think it's a beautiful way to express love towards the newborn with a beautiful and original design. In addition to human footprints, it is also common to tattoo those of animals, this has already become something more normal and less original, but still they are still beautiful and discreet tattoos.
