Whether you’re considering getting inked, or want a symbolic design, there are plenty of dog tattoo ideas for both men and women. You don’t have to have a real dog, of course. A cute stuffed animal or a unique birthmark can be a perfect fit for a dog tattoo. And, there are even tattoos that combine your dog’s name and breed. These tattoo ideas will leave your friends and family in awe!
You Can Choose a Dog Design Influenced by the Cartoon
This tattoo features a girl and her dog, with hearts surrounding them. A quote around the image further reinforces the idea that dogs belong with family. This tattoo is large and colorful, and it costs more than a standard one. But, if you have the budget, you may prefer this design. But, be warned: it will probably cost more than you originally planned, so you’ll want to decide on a design wisely.
You can use your dog as a memorial tattoo, and try incorporating the most memorable memories you have of your beloved pooch. For instance, many dog owners have fond memories of long walks and playing fetch with their pets. Turn those fond memories into tattoo art by choosing a colorful and detailed font. The picture below shows a happy dog with its owner. You can also incorporate the name of the deceased pet into the design. In addition, the dog’s name and photo will be remembered by others forever.
If you’re more traditional, you can choose a dog design influenced by the cartoon. Obviously, Santa’s Little Helper is a popular inspiration. Other popular dog tattoo designs include Lisa and Marge, which are both examples of the Neotraditional art style. While they may not look like a dog, the style is often seen as fashionable, fun, and artsy. There are also plenty of other styles you can choose from, such as a cute little owl or a snarling dog.
