So, what do you think? Are you going to invest in a dog tattoo? Dog tattoos can be great ways to remember that special dog in your life, but if you decide to get a tattoo, make sure you go to a reputable tattoo artist.

It’s best to ask to see the artist’s portfolio ahead of time to make sure that their style is what you’re looking for. Bring some photos for reference, and ask to see a sketch before the artist begins your tattoo.

Tattoos not your thing? Don’t worry, there are plenty of other ways you can honor a special dog or show off your love of dogs.
