20 Cat Tattoo Ideas To Celebrate Your Furry Friend(s)

Animal Tattoos

If you’re aware that this is a cat’s world and you’re just living in it, the chances are that you own a feline or at least had one at some point in your life. These furry friends may not be for everyone, but as a cat person, you know there’s no greater love than the one with your pet. For that or any other reason, you may consider getting a cat tattoo.

A kitty is usually seen as a symbol of intelligence, independence, and a rebellious spirit. If you ever shared a home with a cat, you can confirm that these traits describe them best.

From the moment you get them, they act as if they own the whole place. They scratch your furniture, climb up the curtains, and sleep in your bed even though they have their own.

These furry monsters know what they want and are not afraid to meow for it. But once they sit in your lap and start making biscuits on your legs, you forgive them for all their sins.

If you’re looking to get a cat tattoo to celebrate your favorite pet or to engrave your love for these furry monsters, then you’re at the right place. We’ve gathered 20 cool ideas that you’re going to love.
