One of the newest trends in the tattoo industry is the application of toe ring tattoos. Toe ring tattoos offer the same enjoyment of beautifying and accessorizing one’s feet but without the discomfort and regular maintenance required by metal toe rings. Due to their small sizing and unisex styles, toe ring tattoos are a great option for men and women who are seeking their first permanent mark or one that they can easily conceal.
The three main advantages that toe ring tattoos have over metal toe rings are:
Once healed, toe ring tattoos are not uncomfortable and, unless you are looking directly at it, you will eventually forget that it is even “on.” Toe ring jewelry, on the other hand, can rub adjacent toes, dig into the skin of the toe it is on (particularly when wearing sandal-style shoes) and even come loose and fall off.
2. Less Maintenance
Toe ring tattoos initially require attention during the healing process. After the tattoo has completely healed, there is little to no maintenance. Toe ring jewelry, on the other hand, requires regular cleaning to in order to avoid bacteria buildup between the ring and the skin around it. Feet are natural breeding grounds for bacteria due to the moisture that naturally accumulates while wearing shoes that restrict airflow.
3. Perfect Sizing
A toe ring tattoo stencil is applied to the selected toe area prior to the tattoo process beginning. Once your toe ring tattoo has been completed, you never have to worry about a loose toe ring falling off or your toe ring jamming down too tightly on your toe joint.
All three of these advantages are great reasons to consider toe ring tattoos; coincidentally, they may also save you money. Not only will you save money on special cleaning supplies required by toe ring jewelry, but you also will not need to purchase replacement rings for those that have been lost. And, with many stores enforcing a “No Return” policy on toe ring jewelry (sanitation reasons), you never have to worry about purchasing a toe ring that doesn’t fit comfortably. Your toe ring tattoo will fit perfectly every day!
