healing is two weeks, it's the same for all tattoos. Don't expose it to the sun or to chlorinated water or sea water, it may cause an infection. It shouldn't get too swollen, you'll still be able to wear shoes. It'll hurt, but it depends on your pain tolerance. Definitely use vitamin A&D lotion or Aquaphor (by eucerin) for the aftercare for 3-5 days, after that, use a non-fragrance lotion. Numbing cream works for a short while, but it's a shallow numbing cream, doesn't get through to the muscle tissue. Good luck!
