Fox Paw Print Tattoo by Endless-Masquerade Fox Paw Print Tattoo by Endless-Masquerade
So I finally got my first tattoo on 12-12-12. I couldn't be happier and figured I would share my design with you all.

Damnit everytime I think of a tattoo idea, someone has done it. On the bright side that is an awesome tat!

Thank you sweetheart. I was actually pretty surprised no one seems to have done anything quite like my design before me. I scoured the internet to see if I could find anything to figure out how it would look, but all I found is that most paw print tattoos are rather tacky lol. Since my tattoos though I've seen one or two designs that seem to have been inspired by mine which I think is pretty cool.

I've considered this too...on the bottom of my feet, lol. But this design is lovely.

Alas, you cannot get tattoos on the sole of your feet so I got it on top. Thank you.

Even though it does happen more often than I thought it would (well, I thought it never happened but it does) it's just sort of cool to think about. But, you're right, most artists who wouldn't do it. There's also the fact that in that area it wouldn't last very long, and the chances of infection go up. I don't think I'd ever get it done...so...just cool to think about.

Yes, originally I wanted the tattoos on the sole of my foot but after doing a LOT of research and finding every documented case of sole tattoos that I could, I learned that it was just completely infeasible. Palm of hand tattoos sometimes turn out extremely well and last a long time, but sole of foot tattoos always look horrible within a few weeks. I considered getting my paws done with scarification, but I found no cases whatsoever of that being done so I just got tattoos on the top of my feet instead. I still love them just as much.

Thank you so much sweetheart!

I couldn't recommend it enough :) Everyone was telling me how foot tattoos are the most painful and saying that I'd be bedridden for at least two days, etc. etc. My god. Seriously it was a bunch of hype for nothing. I got there and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I mean, it wasn't running through a bunch of daisies, but it was sort of a hand clenching pain rather than a face agony pain most of the time (for some reason that's the best way I can explain it). I was walking around after it was done (unfortunately my bus decided to be a jerk) and I was fine, honestly I've felt worse foot soreness from heels or when I was figure skating for a few hours. It's now the next day, pretty much ZERO soreness and pain. If you're hesitating because of the whole foot tattoo thing, at least in my experience that's totally bull.

Anyways, I think it would be wonderful to see you get something done with your totem animals! I mean, there's a really good reason why I have my tattoos done but the whole world doesn't know about it yet. But I'd love to see more people get something like this :) I mean, not like I'm a genius of tattoo design or anything like that but certainly feel free to grab up my photos or ask for any reference photos if you feel that would help a tattoo artist understand what you want. Out of curiosity what are your totem animals? I love looking at animal prints.

My totem is the whitetail deer =p a buck with little fork horns, to be exact, though I'm female.

Spiritual guide-wise I have a wolf, coyote, horse and even a fox. the main two are the coyote and horse.
