I've been seriously getting a tattoo on the heel of my foot recently. I want a rectangular stamp-like design on the bottom of my right heel. I plan for it to look similar to the manufacturer's stamp on a boot or other shoe, and I want it to read "Est. 1990" which is my birth year.
For one, what are your opinions on this, and how it should be colored? I'm thinking that black would be the only way to go. Personally, I like the idea, so if you think it's corny, feel free to say so, but it probably won't sway me.
Secondly, how will a tattoo hold up down there? I work as a lifeguard during the summer and walk barefoot on fairly rough concrete a lot. Will this eventually wear down the skin and make the tattoo fade, or will it be too deep in the epidermal layer for that?
