I have always wondered this and did a quick google search and just got a bunch of stories. So on TV shows and movies people who shoot H and pills who dont want visible track marks shoot up between their toes, but to to my knowelege when you shoot up dont you have to hit into a vein than shoot. If so how do you find a vein in the area between your toes? I might end up doing it tonight if I can find some good info.

I've always wondered this too. In the show The Sopranos, when Christopher was using dope they showed him shooting between his toes, then nodding out from the rush immediately afterwards.

There was some other movie I saw about some dude in the military that shot up between his toes to avoid getting caught.

Anyway, I think it's just a myth that it can be done (IV between the toes that is). Maybe there's some fat vein hidden there or something though, it's not like I ever tried it.

No fat veins - just medium to small ones - it takes a lot of knowledge of your feet - the veins fuck up fairly quickly & it's not recommended - well I wouldn't recommend it.
Oh & it can make you wince a little especially if you miss

Shootin into toes and feet is painful at best... for advanced and desperate users only, methinks.

It ain't exactly the way it looks like on the tellybox, trust me :).

I couldn't walk for three days after missing just a tiny shot in my foot once... it really fucking hurt... and the time I shot into my big toe... ouch is all I can say to explain...

You get the picture - please don't inject into your feet, folks :).

Yeah I never attempted to go between my toes, but I did try with the top of my feet and managed to miss once. The liquid somehow made it to the side of my foot and stayed there as a big swollen mass most of the day. Hurt to walk...sucked big time. Lucky I didn't get an abscess or something looking back on it.

Rule of thumb - don't inject into feet, folks - it just ain't such a good idea :).

Hurts a whole lot if you miss. Isn't a painless procedure on itself, you're definately more sensitive there.

The least pain is with the great saphenous vein in your calf.

Shambles

Wrists ain't such a good idea either, whilst we're on the subject, folks - inside of them, I mean.

Ouch would be the appropriate term again :).

man i bet shooting in between ur toes would hurt like a bitch, thats a pretty sensitive area, just shoot in ur arm man, one or two bangs wont be noticeable anyway

Ughh yeah I'd rather bang it on the sides of my feet or even the big ones going around the bottom/sides. The insides of the wrists does hurt like fuck, and man does it blow out if you miss.. ugghhh shudder..

Yeah the calf veins are nice, although i beleive I used mine up, you mean on the side/top of the calf if your sitting with your leg crossed right?

i think that is more of a joke than a real thing... just keep the toe poppin to the movies and find one of a million un-noticeable spots to shoot into. Tie off your upper bicep, or spomthing... WARNING THO: A cool doctor told me DO NOT shoot in your LEGS, HANDS or NECK.. THey are the WORST places to go and will do the most irreperable damage.. fyi... and if your dead set on bangin in your feet, prep with alcohol or betadine, use a bandaid and clean socks afterward... ez

i shot once on my foot. took about 3 times longer to heal than any other place so i have not repeated. personally i use the 2 in the crook of my arm, 2 different spots on top of my forearm (on top of my wrist and about half my forearm further), one on my bicep, then multiply that by 2 for both arms. i rotate those areas so a vein never has 2 injection points. its barely noticeable, especially on the bicep and forearm, and people don't usually think twice about a single dot.

also.. on these TV shows, they sometimes show the person injecting into their ankles.. but the problem with this is that show the person holding the needle in the "down position" when shooting into their ankles.. ( the movie Traffic for example).. and any avid IV user would be able to point that mistake out anytime.. atleast I did when friends and I were watching that movie..
I said "hey! he's injecting her the wrong way!"..

needless to say but they all looked at me crazy b/c they weren't too excited with my festivities at that point.. (years ago).. but I grew out of that stage (dope) later on in my life.. which is where I'm at today.. blessed..
so take the show/movie for exactly what it is.. a movie!

my wife used to shoot between her toes, and under her tongue. but shes WAY tougher than me. i let her hit my big toe once, and it felt like a fucking nail. hurt for a week.

I'm too drunk to see if anyone's stated this already but I think the low circulation in that area makes it bit more risky as opposed to injecting tasty drugs elseware.

right. it certainly wasnt the brightest thing shes ever done. she just didnt want tracks.

You don't.


There aren't any real viable veins there. I mean, after a quick look, there are but they're not something you want to be injecting in. First off, blood doesn't get circulated there as well as it does in your upper body, so it'll take a long ass time to heal. Second, infection is more likely for obvious reasons. Third, it's painful as fuck to be shooting in your feet. Fourth, your foot veins roll a lot.


There are much better areas to be shooting in if one is a concerned about hiding trackmarks.

Look at an anatomical picture of the veins of the foot and you'll see how to shoot between the toes into the dorsal venous arch. Most people will need a half inch needle, possibly longer.

If this is a serious inquiry there is no acceptable answer to this question. Hopefully you are planning to shoot there for the fuck of it (somehow I doubt you would waste the shot though)
1)Physiologically, return to heart would be delayed and minimized-distal lower extremities are just plain pitiful for IV access, remember veins don't have pumps like arteries, its alot of fucking tubing to work thru

2) Time to go thru withdrawal or find another method to get high. I'm sure other parts of your vascalature have had it. Time to accept responsibility and move on. I'm not judging but you have gone too far. Everybody is gonna flame the shit out of me for this but lets help each other with long term outsets in mind. This has no positive outcomes involved in this method of usage.

Ohhh- kay-here come the indignant...

I think the phrase "shooting between the toes" is a phrase people use to give shit to junkies, at least thats the way it is in my circle unfortunately. A girl has also told be shes shot coke under her toenail which is obviously and huge lie.

Its strange how some people brag about injecting drugs when theyve never touched a needle in their life, its pretty sad actually. Why would you lie about such a thing?

i havebeen searching for methods like the veins running through the side of the abdomen or the femoral vein thatni can find...does anybody have a diagram to show where the nmost useable veins are??

Due to the poorer circulation on the feet relative to in the hands or arms it's not adviseable to shoot anything there. When trying to give my hands/mainline a rest or really worried about having track marks I have used the veins on top of the foot but those can be a real bitch to access and dangerous too. Stay away form your lower extremities, folks, it's just not worth it.

I always figured this was bullshit. It's possible to have little to no trackmarks if you rotate you're veins and take care of yourself.

Tell me about it :|.

I've shot into virtually every visible vein on my body (and occasionally other people's too) at some point over the years including necks, foreheads, groins, penises, toes, knuckles, fingers, palms, wrists, soles of the feet, chests, stomachs, backs... I could go on :\.

The only workable veins for long term IV use (in my experience, of course) are the larger ones in the upper and lower arms, back of the wrist and the big ones that run down the inside of the knees and ankles. Of these, upper arms are by far the best - if you are needing to extend the quest for venal pleasure then it's possibly time to take a long and hard look at your IV use - really: trust me on this one, please :|.

def heard of the neck/penis.....still it makes some sense to shoot in the tongue because the veins there are huge (one on each side).....that is if you could hold your tongue still enough to do so....not for the average coke shot :\

shooting under the toenail??? lol....that is ridiculie!!! who would stick a needle under the nail rather than use a freshie in the arm? and even if the arm veins are gone, you would still tie off the leg and try there.....ridiculie! it's totally equivalent to chinese torture 8o

I've only done the top of the foot and that was not a good idea. The veins look so nice and big there but its hard to register. They roll alot and I'm sure the circulation is poor so its harder to get the blood to flow into the needle.

I remember trying two different times. It hurt alot more going in (like I was stabbing myself with something much larger) and I was unable to register. I never did shoot because of this, but just having made the one unsuccesful insertion left my whole foot in pain for 1-2 days later.

What are peoples experiences shooting on the large-loooking veins on the inside ankles? Same as the foot or more like the leg?

Shambles
14-10-2008, 23:17
I found the large vein an the inside of the ankle is okay - comparable to the large one on the inside of the knee cos I presume it's the same one? It's not especially painful and is pretty easy to hit - but as ever, don't hammer it. Mine are both long gone, but I got a year or two's use out of them first. Bear in mind that this was because I was circulating veins - if I was hitting it every day they would have gone a lot sooner.

I would definitely advise anyone in this situation to look into finding ways to stop their IV use before resorting to these more "desperate" veins - it really is only going to put off the inevitible for a lil while longer :\.

ive heard of very weird shit about addiction and shit. i used to be a heroin addict myself but i never did anything like this. unfortunately, i do understand what goes on in an addicts mind. i know addiction can make ppl do desperate things but is it even possible to safely inject drugs under the tongue. are there veins under there? just curious.

yes. there are two large veins running a long each side under the tongue. this is why you should not pierce your own tongue ;)

Between the toes is a Bad Thing, but there's a lovely vein between the fingers - on the thumb side of the index finger with the palm facing you. It's big enough to hit with ease, doesn't hurt anymore than you deserve for shooting into such unpleasant places and works well as it's on the upper part of the body where IV works so much better than it does lower down.

Lovely is of course a very relative term and I really wouldn't advise it - last chance saloon kinda spot :\.

But better than between the toes or - lawks a mussy! - under the tongue (8o), but still a very long way away from being a Good Thing.

Seriously - if you're even considering using spots like this you really should be taking that long hard look at your IV use.

qft and thank you. what can i say? we were in a bad place in life. desperation is a hard bitch.
i used to get really upset at people who criticized me for my lifestyle. i dont anymore. im glad there are so many people who just dont get it. its a good thing.

good advice in most situations! actually, it wasnt long after that we did exactly that. i (mostly) take my pain meds as prescribed, and aside from weed and an occasional oral pill, she is clean. niether of us has used a needle for about 2 years. it was hard, but it CAN be done.
