Dog tattoos...on people!

Postby paperflowers11 » Thu Aug 16, 2012 5:21 pm

It's been a while since there was a thread on this topic...and I've been waffling back and forth on getting a tattoo done myself. I have a beautiful Celtic sighthound design in mind, but I want to see YOUR tattoos too!

So, show us your ink, dog related or otherwise. =)

I have my first dog's pawprint tattooed in the middle of my back with a beautiful lotus flower around it.
I have no idea how to post pics...but if I can figure out how I'll put one up.

No dog tats but I do have a cat on my shoulder! Got it done more than twenty years ago, so it's a bit faded...but here's my sweet little Meezer, snoozing away. :sleeping-blue: (You have to be a contortionist to take pictures of your own tat, BTW....)

I've always fancied getting a small tattoo but have never found an image that I would be happy carrying around for life. I'm a huge Queens of the Stone Age fan and have often considered getting their Circle Q logo done.

I met a customer at the pharmacy who had her first whippet's dog tag tattooed onto her foot. It was pretty neat.

I don't have a tattoo, but I've thought about it through the years. My hubby threatens to divorce me if I ever get one. :P

Love all the sighthound tats! I've always thought about getting one but I'm so picky about design that I don't know what to settle on or where to put it. I would never be able do the spider. They creep me out too much but they all look very well done. :)
