Ideas for Panther Tattoos

Some panther tattoos designs and ideas are; a panther with its head tilted down slightly with its eyes tilting up a bit so they are looking right at you. This is where good nose and whiskers as well as the eyes detail will make this tattoo stand out. In this design try inking the panther in its natural habitat, with the full view of the panther in very thick vegetation unaware that the cat is being watched. Lots of vegetation and small a few tree trunks partially blocking parts of the panther’s body will add an air of mysteriousness.  A butterfly on a green long leaf close to its nose will look great.
