Have you ever Thought of Getting a Dog Tattoo or a Pet Tattoo?

When we love our pets so much like we do we want to memorialize them with a forever imprint on our bodies with one or more pet tattoos. We find a good tattoo artist and we trust them to draw the best version of our loved furry friend.

You may already know that tattoos are a booming business in the world of tattooing. But have you given any thought to what market there might be for pet tattoos? Keep reading to find out!

We asked our Facebook followers to share their pet-inspired tattoos with us on our page. We made a selection of some of these pet tattoos and we made a video compilation for you to enjoy.

Pets are amazing, some of them even change our lives dramatically, some of them enter our lives at a certain difficult point and we consider them our guardian angels. That is why we chose to add a forever imprint of their soul on our skin. Have you ever met someone with a nice tattoo of their pet? Every pet tattoo has a beautiful story behind it and we love hearing and sharing them.

Why You Should Consider Getting a Pet Tattoo?

In recent years, the pet industry has been growing rapidly and it is now worth billions. This increase has generated more money for people who care for pets and also reflects a shift in our relationship with animals. As human society becomes increasingly urbanized, we are seeing a dramatic decrease in the time spent with animals by humans. We’re spending less time with them and putting them more into a cage, or even worse, a shelter.

When we see the pleasure pet owners get from their animals, we can’t help but wonder what it would be like for us to get something like that. Why are pet tattoos so popular? People have spent so much time with pets and developed deep emotional attachments to them that it would be difficult for anyone not to show some form of attachment on the skin.

The trend is toward smaller and smaller animals, i.e. the pet industry is getting more and more specialized. Fewer people are keeping animals as pets, but the number of pets is still growing.

Akin to the humans who are involved in the pet industry, tattooing too has become a more specialized business. Furthermore, the custom experience of getting tattooed is becoming more and more popular in our culture. Thus, there is a new pet niche opening up that mixes these two cultural forces – people who want to get tattoos for their pets!

The best part about this idea is that it’s not just another niche market idea. Tattoos have become so popular that tattooing is entering the mainstream of our culture. We’re already at a point where popular culture can no longer make fun of tattoos. It’s here to stay and it’s here to get bigger.
