A tattoo studio can tattoo a small design around the toe in the shape of a ring. The tattoo artist inks the skin around the toe using the same methods that are used for tattooing any other body part.

A tattoo that is inked over just the top of the toe gives the same look as a ring, but is less painful to get and typically costs less. Unlike a traditional toe ring, a tattooed toe ring does not hurt when it is worn and can never get lost. It is permanent, but may fade over time like any tattoo. Toe ring design ideas are available online and at tattoo studios.
