Tattoos have been inked since time immemorial to celebrate special events or to highlight a landmark in one’s life. Across cultures and civilizations people have used body art to decorate themselves and make a special moment permanent. A birth of a loved child is one such beautiful occasion, and a tattoo can celebrate the joy in a unique way. To make the tattoo completely fresh, personal, and original there’s hardly a better way than to get a tattoo with the footprint mark of the child.
Footprints tell their own tales with the folds and ridges adding a very personal touch. Most footprints tattoos use the direct impression of the child’s foot as a model to get the inking done perfectly, down to the last folds and grooves. This is why Footprint Tattoos are one of the most unique ways to preserve the memory of a baby’s birth. Black and brown are some common shades for a footprint tattoo design, but sometimes decorative touches like a pattern of stars can add a touch of bright color. A simple blue for a baby boy, and pink for a baby girl is a classic way to add color and meaning to footprints tattoos. Coming into the world, and passing out of it, are both symbolized as footprints. Just like a birth the death of a beautiful child can also be recorded forever right on the skin with a special footprint tattoo with the name and date. Deep, meaningful, and completely personal, a footprint tattoo is a keepsake to carry forever.
