Dog Tattoo Designs

Dogs have long been man’s best friend, and as such it makes sense that many people wish to display their love for this animal in the form of a tattoo. The traditional image of a pet dog is not the only way in which this powerful animal can be represented on the body.

The Chinese zodiac: The dog is just one sign of the Chinese zodiac. These signs represent the specific year in which you were born, each in the form of a different animal. Those who were born in the years 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 and 2006 will all be represented under the year of the dog. These symbols have deep meaning when it comes to Chinese culture and representation of character, so you may choose a Chinese representation to make your tattoo unique to you.

Memorial Tattoos: Pets can become very close to us, so when one dies it makes sense that we want to do something special to remember them. In the case of a dog you may choose to have an image of your dog, as well as its name, tattooed on a part of your body. Paw prints are also a great way to memorialise your pet.

Wolf Tattoos: The wolf is one of the most powerful images of the dog, and these tattoos are chosen as a way of representing the wild side or the beast within us. The wolf often makes for a stunning larger tattoo.
