The reason behind getting a dog paw tattoo can be as simple as the person likes the way paw prints look while others have a much more significant reason for this tattoo. Some people use a paw print to represent their four legged friend with or without the name of their beloved dog. Paw prints can be placed almost anywhere and still look amazing. A single print can be placed on the shoulder or neck whereas a trail of paw prints can look nice around the ankle or “walking” up the side of the body. There are many different designs from tribal to traditional that can be picked out. Some have even gone as far as getting their dog’s actual paw print tattooed on their body. The bond between a person and his or her canine companion can be a strong one so it’s no surprise that dog paw tattoos are as popular as they are.
