Tailor's bunion. Close-up of a tailor's bunion on the foot of a 69-year-old female patient. Tailor's bunion is similar to a normal bunion but is caused as a result of inflammation of the fifth metatarsal bone at the base of the little toe. This specific form of bunion is known as a tailor's bunion because in the past, tailors sat cross-legged and this was thought to cause the protrusion on the outside of the foot, unlike a normal bunion, which affects the big toe.
