Japanese-style foot tattoos

I'm looking for some inspiration for Japanese-style foot tattoos, ideally with plenty of foot coverage but without being something that really should be bigger, if that makes sense? ie I'm not wanting to squeeze a dragon on there or something. Coverage like this, but other subject ideas and example pics would be appreciated.

Thanks guys. That Horitoshi site is a bit of a ball-ache to navigate eh? Oh to speak Japanese!

Tex those feet are awesome. I guess something similar but full-on Japanese could be a hannya mask or something. Very nice.

Out of interest - how long did it take your feet to recover and be reasonably usable?

To be honest, the foot isn't really a traditional Japanese spot to tattoo. You could get many different images done their though, sea creatures, small animals, masks... are you wanting a background with it or just a "one point" japanese tattoo?

For Bunshin Horitoshi's site it is easy to navigate once you look around a bit, but here is a link to his tattoos ?????????

[edit] just click on the "bu, sai, gi, gen, you,...." for different galleries.

That's all great stuff guys. Thalia that octopus is very cool. I know the foot isn't going to throw up a huge amount of Japanese reference because they then to end mid-calf or at the ankles, but I'm slowly planning the various bits and pieces I fancy getting and the idea of something on the foot really appeals. The obvious downside is the hobbling around and funky footwear for a while thereafter! I might not end up going Japanese for it, but was thinking something to tie-in with what I'm planning for my arm and chest would be cool.

It's not difficult to add a Japanese style background to an image of a rose, if that's what you want. Your best bet is to decide on an image you want on your foot, then look at artists you are willing to travel to, to get work done by. Once you find an artist who's work you like, you can meet them and tell them what you want in your tattoo, tell them how big you'd like it, and go from there.

    • Yessir I still have a 2 bicep bands scheduled with the same tattoo artist. He says he’ll know exactly how to do it for next one because now he knows how his depth should be with my flesh especially on the inner bicep. He says we should be good no issues. what do you guys think? Should I continue - he says the tattoo would be free given the previous ones. 
    • It takes 6-8 weeks to heal. You’ll know then, regardless of how many times you ask or how you word the question. Having said that, thin delicate skin, like where you got your tattoo, is most prone to blowouts and thin lines make them the most obvious. There is nothing you can do except cover them up if it really bothers you. It’s been asked dozens of times.
    • hi guys, ive recently had 2 band tattoos done and it’s been 5 days since. first is the wrist band (3 lines) and the second is the ankle band (1 thick line between 2 thin lines) I’ve been rubbing Richie Bulldog certified hustle butter on it daily (twice a day) since taking off the plastic cover. First plastic seal was put one for 24 hours then I washed it and dried it and put another plastic seal for 48 hours. So I’ve rubbed hustle butter since Wednesday evening. my questions are: - are these major/minor blowouts? - would you continue using same tattoo artist after these blowouts? - tattoo artist is willing to fix them with same skin tone ink to camouflage it (after it is fully healed) free of charge - would you move forward with this? - how long does it take to fully heal? - if tattoo artist is willing to do a free tattoo for this inconvenience, should I consider it? ankle band: front view: Outer side view : : inner side view: Back:
