A man who was ‘tired of paying’ for new shoes got his ‘favourite trainers’ tattooed on his feet. 

The unnamed customer visited a Manchester artist, named Dean Gunther, who has detailed how he completed the task.

The 34-year-old, who is originally from South Africa, told “I wanted to create the illusion that the person is wearing shoes, even though he’s bare feet, ‘It will definitely make you look twice.”

He continued: “Drawing the tattoo on my free hand was the most challenging part. I had to make sure everything flowed with the contours of the body.

“A stencil would not work in this case, so it’s all freehand. Once that was on, the tattooing was straightforward.”

Explaining why the man decided to get the unusual tattoo, Gunther added: “He’s tired of paying for shoes, so he decided he will get his favourite pair of Nikes tattooed on him and he can see the funny side to it! Definitely a great conversation starter. His wife loves it too.”

After seeing the inking on social media, many people have shared their thoughts.

One wrote: “I never wear shoes if I don’t have to. I think I love this idea! Perhaps I will have to ‘invest’ in some permanent ‘sandals’ so I don’t have to!”

“Classic!” said another. “Your feet, I love Nikes! It made me smile, who gives a f*** what others think. Nope, not for them.”

A third pitched in, writing: “What the heck. This is so bloody ridiculous, I love it.”

However, others didn’t seem to be as amused with the inking, with one penning: “Please tell me this is some sort of sick joke.”

A second remarked: “After this, he needs shoes more than ever to cover those.”
