Cat tattoos can include everything from the domestic shorthair you share your apartment with to the wild animals living at your local zoo.
When considering a cat tattoo anywhere on your body, the first thing you need to consider is what type of cat tattoo you’d like. If you’re interested in cats that resemble traditional pets, you can choose from long hair or short hair felines.
Cat tattoos can be minimalist, realistic, cartoonish, small, large, abstract, such as mandala, and blacklined or full color. You’ll also have to decide whether you want the cat or kitten to be striped or solid colored.
If you want a bit of a risky kitty and not a house cat, you can choose from lions, tigers, cougars, panthers, jaguars and more. The same styles that present for a traditional cat are also available for exotic cats too.
If you are more interested in a character cat tattoo then just a traditional or exotic cat tattoo, you might want to consider Garfield, the Pink Panther, Tom, or your personal favorite.
When it comes to tattoo locations for your kitty inspired ink, you can’t really choose a bad spot. Instead of tattoo location, you should consider where you want the tattoo placed on your body.
A minimalist cat tattoo would look great on your fingers, wrist, behind your ear, or as a small tat on your foot. Housecat tattoos would look great on your shoulder, chest, wrist, and ankle.
If you’re opting for a large exotic cat tattoo, you should consider your upper arm, thigh, chest, and back. You probably have a good idea of what you want your cat tattoo to look like. If you still need tattoo inspiration, you can check out the options below.
