Tattoos offer many things, and one of those is a way of celebrating a beloved pet. If you’re looking to pay homage to your furry friend, what better way than with one of their paw prints; it’s their form of a signature that will be a permanent reminder of all of the walks, belly rubs, and games of fetch you played together.
Many people have taken the plunge to get dog paw tattoos. Because they’re relatively simple in design, it’s easy have them inked on your body and still remain inconspicuous. But, if you wanted to add some visual flair to the piece, a watercolor style tattoo is a brilliant option. It illuminates the body art in vibrant, fluid hues that's as colorful as your pooch's personality.
So, what’s the best way to make this form of animal tattoo faithful to your pup? Simple—let your dog “brand” you by pressing their paw onto your skin or on a piece of paper. Then, take it to your tattoo artist and have them translate it onto your skin. “It looks exactly like the muddy paw prints [my dog] Doodle leaves all over the house,” Kayla Harren explains. “Now I have one of my very own to carry around forever and ever.”
