14 Celebrities That Love Showing Off Their Foot Tattoos

While we’re used to seeing celebrities flaunting their tattoos on the red carpet, recently even foot and leg tattoos seem to be trending among celebrities, though not many go as far (or low) as Miley Cyrus:

Since feet have less padding provided by muscle, thereby bringing the bones and tendons closer to the surface, getting a foot tattoo is generally more painful than a regular tattoo. The healing process also takes time, not to forget the increased risk of infections in the future as a tattoo essentially is a scrape. You can read more about the possible implications in the excellent foot tattoo guide at Whole Addiction.

Have a look at the following celebrities sporting foot and/or leg tattoos and let us know what you think about this trend:
