We sometimes get people who scoff at portraits of pets. They don’t understand why someone would get a tattoo of an animal. The question we then post to those people is, what do people love more than their pets? Barring children and other family members, our pets are our best friends, together until the end. We have only very rarely seen a portrait of a best human friend, and then usually only posthumously, but the dog portrait is the most common of all pet portraits. We believe the reason for this is obvious. We have all see those pictures on the internet of dogs who would not leave their owners side in distress, sometimes even in death, and we all know our cats would eat us if we died!
The artists at Cardinal Tattoo are all animal lovers, so we understand the love between human and pet. We hope to see you soon to honor your own fur (or scale) babies with that next tattoo!
