Both spots are more painful, so I wouldn’t let that be a determining factor. Ribs are hard because any undergarments  like a bra will potentially tub the spot and cause blurring/scarring and make it heal less pretty. The ankle is a good area because it doesn’t get as much sun exposure and will look crisp longer, but it’s more visible in skirts/dresses/shorts. I have a tattoo on the inside of my ankle. It looks like the day I got it, and it’s been 5 years.

By October your tattoo will be healed and you can cover it with make-up if you want. Just google DermaBlend and Zombie Boy.

I’d advise you against getting someone’e else’s name/initials. It’s just a bad idea for the most part. What if he cheats on you in 10 years and you get divorced? Tattoos are forever. Laser removal is very expensive, and very painful. And it doesn’t work for all colors. Your only other option would be to keep it, or cover it with another tattoo.

@Purple_Bride:  I was going to get one on my foot and they said they oftentimes they  don’t heal right in that spot. So I went with the back of my neck near my hair line. Easy to cover when needed but can also sport it

I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo forever now but I’m waiting until after I get married because I don’t want it anywhere in my pictures. I think if the tattoo is as small as you say it is, it won’t show up too much in pictures if you get it on your foot. How many close ups of your feet are you going to take? Plus, your photographer might be able to edit it out. if you’re that worried why not wait until after? You’ve already waited this long.

I have two tattoos.. one on my ribs and one on my foot. The ribs hurt less while it was being done but hurt like hell while healing because my shirt/bra rubbed on it. The one on my foot hurt like crazy during but healed quickly. My rib tattoo is 3 years old and is still as beautiful as the day I got it. My foot tattoo was originally done a year and a half ago and I was back in last week having it touched up. They fade a lot faster in that area. Not sure if that helps your decision.

The ink falls out of foot and hand tattoos much quicker than other areas. Those are the two areas that any decent tattoo artist will warn you about and not offer any guarantees. If you don’t mind going to get your tattoo touched up semi-regularly (every few years, compared to other parts of the body which will last a decade or longer without fading) then foot is fine.


I’m more concerned about the design. A penny is tiny… so you’re going to have an S somewhere on your body… a tiny little S. I guess the plus side of having it somewhere covered is you can hide it, but I really think it’ll look odd and incomplete.


(note- I have several tattoos)

I am a veteran in the tattoo area. Have some on my ribs, upper arm and foot. Don’t decide on a tattoo by your wedding shoes. Decide on one by where it would mean the most to be. For example, a friend who passed’s name is on my foot to signify ‘every step I take’. Michiru4ever made a good point too with tattoo cover-up. Make sure you test this before because I’ve seen two brides skimp and end up with a tan spot on their wedding dress from rubbing.

And a quick add-to avoid fading on my foot and ribs I use cocoa butter daily. This helps keep the color bright and moisturized. I’ve had the tattoo for 7 years and it looks just as good as the day I got it. Promise.
