The obsession with tattoos knows no bounds, and we’ve got plenty of stories to attest to. The recent one is from a British man who was tired of buying new shoes. What he did next will indeed leave you puzzled. He got his favorite pair of Nike shoes tattooed on his feet. The tattoos imitating the design of the shoes were made by the famous tattoo artist Dean Gunther. The design was shared by the artist via his official Instagram page. Posting a time-lapse video that showed the process of making tattoos on both feet, Gunther wrote: “He was tired of paying for shoes every few months so he got his Nike shoes tattooed favorites for life.”
Gunther’s post went viral, amassing over a million views. The tattoo has divided the internet. While many appreciated the unique design of the tattoo, some found it “unnecessary and distasteful”. “Lol that’s a joke isn’t it,” wrote one user, while another commented, “Haha brilliant I bet he’s feeling them right now.” “Wow, a brave two-footed man,” wrote a third user.
Gunther told needtoknow.online that the goal was to create the illusion that the person is wearing shoes, even if they are barefoot. “It will definitely make you look twice,” the tattoo artist says.
Talking about the process, Gunther reflected on the hardest part of the design he did freehand. He said: “Drawing the tattoo with my free hand was the hardest part. I had to make sure that everything hugs the contours of the body.
Gunther, who thinks the tattoo design is a great conversation starter, shared that the man was tired of paying for shoes and decided to take another route to solve the problem.
