With the recent death of Harley, I've been thinking about getting a memorial tatto, possibly two little paw prints with angel wings to remember him by.
Does anyone have one for a pet that has passed away? If so, would you mind sharing what your tattoo looks like. Thank you!

Aw, I think that's sweet! I don't know of anyone w/ pet tattoos, but a friend of mine died when we were 12 and her mom found this doodling she did of a vine and had it tattooed on her wrist. Another friend works at V Tech and got an anklet tattoo. The "charm" is a VT logo and the "links" are one for each of the victims (shooter included).

I don't know anyone with a pet memorial tatoo, but I think that it's a really nice idea.

I like your idea. It sounds sweet.
I had an African Grey that died a few years ago. I got a memorial tattoo of her. She was so funny and so fierce... I wanted to remember her like that, so I got her posed like an eagle tossing lightening bolts. I miss her so much.

I've always thought about that. I've seen it done a couple of times on Miami Ink.
Here's some pictures I found:

I'm not really into tatoos, but when I read this it made me remember...when my FIL passed away earlier this year, the funeral home actually cremated peoples pets. What they did have for you as a rememberance was a necklace you could buy with a copy of their nose print, or paw print, which I thought was really cool. On the back was the pets name date of birth/death. That's all I can remember for sure, but I thought it was a sweet way to always remember, without the pain of being tatooed. :)

That's really neat. Where was this if you don't mind me asking? ..Do they have a website?

I have a griffin, as a tribute to my first bearded dragon (my heart dragon) whose name was griffin.

THanks for all the posts! I'm meeting with an artist tomorrow to try and design one. I do love the dog footprint where the dog's face appears!

Just wanted to update everyone to let you know that I went ahead and got Harley's memorial tattoo. I had my first sitting last wednesday and I'll go back for the final sitting in about 3 weeks. Right now it's just the outline and some shading. When I go back I will have all the color added in.
The tattoo it self is Harley's pawprint (I had it enlarged) with wings and bursts of light come from behind the pawprint. I really liked the burst of light idea that the artist came up with. It represents how strong and vibrant Harley was while he was alive.
Here's a pic of the half done tattoo. I'll post another once the color has been done.

With the loss of my Doxie I did a paw print with a halo and her name in a banner.
I've also seen a paw print with a halo and large angel wings.
In whatever you choose, it will be awesome.

I recently won a free tattoo (they didnt really give me a price limit, but it has to be reasonably small) in a raffle at my sisters baby shower. Im getting Baileys paw print, but I havent decided where to put it yet.. Ill be getting it within the next couple weeks, so I'll be posting pics once its done

I saw a tv show where a guy had this basenji with a white spot on its back, and he got the same spot tattooed on the same place on his back....just thought it was cool...though, when Maggie passes, I WILL NOT get a mowhawk tattooed on my nose.
