I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but...here goes.

For any of you who have tattooed feet, have you noticed that the ink fades quickly?  I finally convinced my tattoo guy to do some work on my feet but he's still a bit hesitant.  He claims they fade really fast from wearing shoes/socks, etc. and thinks they're a waste of time.  Weird, considering that would mean more business for him if I went back for touch-ups.  Anyway, I've got tats everywhere else on my body and this was the one that I've wanted the most for a LONG time.

Any info would be great!

Thanks!!!

My aunt has this big black widow spider tattooed on the top of her foot, done in black ink with a lot of details. It's been there for at least 20 years (she's 41) and I'm positive she hasn't had touch-ups. Last I time I saw it it was still very much there.

The only comments she said about it is that it hurt like h*** to get done. So my guess is, pick dark inks and go for it!

Yeah, I've heard it hurts pretty bad, but I'm one of those weirdos who actually likes the pain of getting a tattoo.  Since it's so close to the bone, I'm sure it's gonna feel pretty weird, but I'm up for it.

Thanks for your input.  Anyone else have any comments?

I know a woman with a blue and black tattoo on her foot (a design made to look like a ring her mother gave her), and I don't think hers has faded at all either. (I didn't even know tattoos COULD fade, but I guess I don't know all that much about tattoos...)

I have one on my foot and it hasn't faded at all. It's of paw prints of all my dogs I've had since I've been married and 2 foot prints to signify my 2 girls. I have had it about 3 yrs.

i think it is where on the foot that makes the difference.  feet and the palms on hands have an extra layer of skin, thus causing the skin to shed more. and that is why you get blisters.

I recently got my feet done, hurt like a bit*h...of course...but my guy wasnt hesitant at all and had his done years and years ago and the color still looks great. I think a lot of the fading all depends on the person, the tattooist, and the care.
