I got my favourite Nike trainers tattooed on my feet so I can wear them to bed – people say I'm crazy but it's worth it | The Sun

MEET the man who has had his favourite pair of Nike trainers tattooed onto his feet.

Following a painful eight-hour tattoo session, Blazej doesn't have to worry about leaving the house without his favourite pair of shoes.

Blazej, an HGV driver, said: "It was a spontaneous decision to get the trainer tattoo, but I really liked the idea because it is different and not something that you see very often.

"I love all kinds of Nike trainers, but Jordans are my absolute favourites so I decided that this was the pair that I would base my design on.

"It was a very painful experience. The worst part was my toes and my heels, but it was worth the pain as the tattoo looks great.

"Luckily, the recovery wasn't too bad for me either because my feet didn't swell too much.

"I was back at work within three days of having the tattoo."

Dean Gunther, 44, a tattoo artist from Manchester, used his 15 years of tattooing experience to draw the perfect replica of Blazej's favourite shoes perfectly onto his feet.

Dean said: "He loves his Nike shoes and decided to get them tattooed on permanently.

"That just shows his commitment. He's tired of buying new shoes every few months, so now he can wear his Nikes even to bed.

"I thought it was very funny. His wife found it funny too. I think it's definitely a great icebreaker and he is a grown man, so I guess he can do whatever he wants.

"It was definitely an unusual request. It took me two hours to draw the sneakers on and another eight hours to tattoo both feet in one day.

"I specialise in colour realism tattoos, and this is something completely different.

"I like to do the odd crazy tattoo."
