Today’s post is for cat lovers the world over. They say that people don’t really own cats and that it’s the other way around, but with cat tattoos, perhaps pet owners may have the chance to say “You’re mine!”
Feast your eyes on these awesome cat tattoos we’ve found online.
Cats just want to have fun
One too many people have had Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” playing over and over in their heads, but wanting to have fun is not limited to girls. At least based on this cat tattoo.
Not only is it a fun concept, but the cat is amazingly inked, not to mention the text design below.
Grumpy Cat is grumpy
There can’t be a list of awesome cat tattoos without Grumpy Cat. Whoever got this tattoo must have the world on his shoulders, but you have to admit that this is one pretty cool tatt – black-ringed eyes, turned-down mouth, and all.
Another iconic cat, the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland gives everyone the shivers – good or bad, whatever the case may be.
One thing’s for sure: this cat tattoo gets its fair share of attention.
What can I say? This cat will fit right in in any sci-fi setting.
Also: if you’re feeling trippy.
Dia De Los Muertos cat
Dia De Los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, brings out the creative in all of us. At least those who are into the holiday. From makeup to costumes to masks – people go to great lengths to look the part.
With this tattoo, though, you have an all-year round tribute to the holiday.
Forget grumpy. Forget trippy. Forget freaky.
Welcome the gentleman cat. Aside from the elegance of the cat, the color shades and lines are a testament to the artist’s skill.
Another tattoo that epitomizes the lofty grace of cats. This particular cat may very well be a match for the gentleman above. She (I’m assuming it’s a she) is obviously well-read and likes her cuppa.
Daruma Samurai Cat Tattoo
The Daruma doll, also known as a Dharma doll, is a traditional “figurine” in the Japanese culture. It is round and hollow, patterned after Bodhidharma who founded the Zen sect of Buddhism. Combine that with the traditional samurai figure, and you’ve got one heck of a cat tattoo.
For a realistic take, this portrait cat tattoo is pretty much as good as it gets. The blur is good, but the expression of this cat tells you just how these critters are in real life, doesn’t it?
Last, but not the least, let’s have a little bit of cute and simple. With the kitten’s pose and the heart, no one can deny that cute is what the artist was going for. It’s not cloyingly cute, though, if you know what I mean; so this cat tattoo makes the cut.
