Badass Unique Animal Tattoos

Mark Duhan @markduhan

There are a lot of animals that get a bunch of love from tattoo enthusiasts, like dogs, cats and lions. But there are a ton of animals that you don’t see nearly as often, making it hard for us to create a full length gallery for them. That’s why we’re bringing you today’s unique creatures gallery. These are badass animal tattoo designs that feature animals that aren’t the subject of tattoos as often as their more popular counterparts. We’re not saying these animals are less popular in general, we just have a hard time finding stunningly done tattoos of them. If you have a unique animal tattoo design you want to share, be sure to do so on Instagram and maybe you’ll all make it possible for us to feature some of these animals in their own gallery.   Read More »

Puurrfect Cat Tattoos

Matteo Pasqualin @matteopasqualin

Earlier we talked about man’s best friend (you can check it out here), so it’s only fair we now bring you a gallery about its feline counterpart. The ongoing debate about whether or not dogs and cats are better will continue to rage despite any claims we make, and frankly there are people in both camps here at TAM so we wouldn’t be able to come up with a definitive answer anyway. That being said, even dog lovers can’t deny how amazing these cat tattoos look. If you’re a lover of great tattoos, you’ll find a way to set aside your dog/cat opinions and love these tattoos no matter what.   Read More »

Stunning Man’s Best Friend Tattoos

Matteo Pasqualin @matteopasqualin

Dogs are man’s best friend. This is usually the point where we’d give you some fun facts as to why this idiom exists, but do we really have to? It’s a well-known fact all over the world – like dogs being a thousand times better than cats. (Okay, maybe that last bit was more opinion than fact.) Recent studies have discovered that many domestic dogs come from the now extinct Taymyr wolf that once existed tens of thousands of years ago. These new findings suggest that domesticated dogs started to arise around the time people became hunter-gatherers, not agriculturists – which is much sooner than previously thought. We’ve put together a tattoo gallery all about man’s best friend. Even if you – for some unknown reason – prefer cats over dogs, you can’t deny these tattoos are simply amazing.   Read More »
