All dog people know that indescribable connection they have with their pups and how they can change our lives forever. They leave a paw print on our hearts, and sometimes a special dedication in the form of a beautiful tattoo. There are countless creative directions you can go—here are a few amazing examples for some inspiration:
Striking yet simple, an American-traditional-style tattoo would be perfect for the American Bulldog in your life, or any bold pup with a little extra personality.
If you prefer elegance, a soft and pretty style is an expressive way to capture a docile pup like the Greyhound.
There are so many creative, out-of-the-box drawings that tattoo artists can create based on your dog—this geographic style is a contemporary way to pay tribute.
There’s something about hound dogs and their floppy ears that makes us picture them with a bowtie and monocle—it also makes for a quirky, illustrative tattoo.
Capturing a Pug’s bugged eyes in a humorous cartoon seems like a no-brainer. This Pug-n-donuts rendition may be the cutest tattoo we’ve ever seen!
For those who like to keep it simple, go with a simple outline paired with your dog’s name—or even the name by itself. Sometimes less is more.
Your tattoo doesn’t necessarily have to resemble your dog, especially if you’ve had several special dogs in your life (lucky you!). A famous dog, like Frankenweenie, is a fun way to symbolize the love you have for your dog(s).
Splashy watercolors just have a way of illustrating a dog’s soul. A colorful masterpiece can capture your dog’s inner spirit in a big way.
If you like illustrative designs but still want to keep it simple, the sketch style could be the perfect choice. It’s a “ruff” style that can capture the character of your one-of-a-kind canine.
Simple Paw Print
The paw print approach is a simple way to remember your dog, and it can fit virtually anywhere on your body. Filling it with a nice design adds a feminine touch to this everyday shape.
Two in One
Framing those two adorable faces with some flowers is the perfect composition for fur moms or dads with more than one fur kid.
