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.

Some of the best tattoos are the ones that are the most meaningful. That could mean a paw print tattoo, portrait tattoo, a tiny tattoo, dog paw tattoo, a memorial tattoo, and a puppy tattoo! Anything that celebrates the life of your best friend. You could live with a pit bull, chihuahua, retriever, or a french bulldog and they all deserve some ink. You could stick to black and white or go for a colorful tattoo.

There are so many dog tattoo ideas in this article! The research that went into these tattoo designs will hopefully inspire you to get one!

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.
