Tattoo artist inking “permanent shoes” on a customer’s feet

A man who was “tired of paying” to replace his worn-out shoes has decided to get his favorite pair of Nike trainers tattooed onto his feet.

Tattoo artist Dean Gunther, 34, used his incredible artistic skills to draw the sneakers’ design onto the man’s feet before making the ink permanent, creating a strange but stunning illusion.

Dean, who is originally from Bellville in South Africa but moved to the UK five years ago, recently went viral for tattooing a realistic six-pack on a man’s stomach, but his latest project is even more bizarre.

He said of his creation: “I wanted to create the illusion that the person is wearing shoes even though they are barefoot. It will definitely make you look twice.”

Dean – who set up his own tattoo studio in Greater Manchester called DG Tattoo Art – found the sneaker design his client liked best, viewed the image 360 ​​degrees and then drew the design freehand on the client’s foot.

It took Dean about two hours to draw the piece and another eight hours to tattoo it onto both feet.

He added: “Drawing the tattoo on my free hand was the hardest part. I had to make sure everything flowed with the contours of the body. A stencil wouldn’t work in this case, so it’s all freehand.

“Once that was on, tattooing was straightforward.

The tattoo took Dean 10 hours

“He’s tired of paying for shoes so he decided to get a tattoo of his favorite pair of Nikes and he can see the funny side of it! Definitely a great conversation starter. His wife loves it too.”

The artist shared his creation on TikTok and Instagram, where it garnered more than 2 million views, and commenters can’t get enough of the unique design.

One person wrote: “Save a fortune on sneakers.”

While another said: “Wow brave man [to do] both feet.”

And a third wrote: “Crazy as heels love it.”

Dean recently won Best in Show at the Liverpool Tattoo Convention with an African-inspired tattoo that took him three days to complete and has also given fans a hint as to what his next tattoo creation will be.

The artist says he’ll be creating one of the most emotional pieces he’s ever attempted in hopes of raising cancer awareness.
