Although the instep is one of the most delicate areas where tattooing due to pain, it is currently one of the most popular and favorite areas for women although you will surely have seen more than one man with this type of tattoo. The most popular motifs for tattooing on the instep are flowers, vines, musical notes, butterflies, dragonflies, phrases, elven writing, skulls, stars … etc.
Perhaps this is because women spend more time fixing and adorning their feet from rings, nail polish … etc. In fact, there are few celebrities who choose this area of the foot to wear a sensual tattoo and wear them even with fancy costumes at special events. As in the case of Charlize Theron who sports a mini fish in the comb that is identical to that of her mother with whom she says she is very close. Do not forget that in this area of the body, the tattoos are and look perfect with any dress and with any shoe. And there are few places in the body where you can wear a tattoo in a pleasant, sensual and discreet way like this.
It is certainly a very discreet area since it can be easily covered by tights, long pants and entire shoes. On the other hand it has the advantage of being a flat area where the professional can perform the tattoo in a relaxed way despite being a small place , delicate and somewhat limited.
Keep in mind that the size of the tattoos on the instep are usually medium or small and in most cases with an elongated shape due to the natural physiognomy of this part of the body. Do not forget that tattooing a medium or small motif can always be cheaper than large tattoos. However, because this type of tattoo is almost always in contact with shoes, socks, socks … etc., its care must be greater and even more expensive than others, bearing in mind the importance of having a good Hygiene to avoid infections.
However, do not forget that like any other tattoo, you have to take care of it and keep it from being directly sunk, moisturizing the tattoo area more and, above all, taking care and hygiene with common sense and understanding the special characteristics of that area. On the other hand, because we find one of the most conflictive areas when owning a tattoo, it is important to keep in mind a series of special care that will prevent further and premature deterioration such as wearing sandals that do not rub the tattoo, wear pants that do not rub that area, logically not exposing it to the sun and carrying good lubrication.
With all the aforementioned you should know that to perform this type of tattoos you must look for a good professional capable of working with small or medium details and inform you of the necessary care.
