Another question is, what tattoo artists and piercers are actually performing these pet tattoos and pet piercings? What is the code of ethics for these tattoo studios who allow this practice to take place? What is their take on the idea?

Pet Tattoos and Piercings: Trend or Animal Cruelty?

Submitted by Naomi V on April 8, 2015 - 6:06pm

Have you ever seen or even heard of this unusual trend? Some pet owners get their animals tattoos or piercings. While they might look cool to some, there is a lot of controversy about the practice. Because these are animals, they don't exactly get a say so on whether they want a tattoo or piercing. Not to mention that these processes are extremely painful, especially tattoos because of the amount of time needed. New Jersey lawmakers introduced a bill in 2014 that would make the practice of tattooing or piercing a pet, animal cruelty.

If you're thinking about getting a full back tattoo, there are many things to consider. It's probably ideal to have had experience getting smaller tattoos before you commit to getting your whole back done. It will be painful, it will be long, and it will be expensive. But to truly express yourself in such a bold, big way can be truly priceless. That's what tattoo is all about, right? Tattoo is literal self expression at its fullest in one of its truest and most beautiful forms.

The back is the perfect part of the body to get someone's dream tattoo. Some common themes are portraits, Asian themes such as koi, dragons, geishas or samurai. Wing tattoos can often take up a good portion of the back, which are most popular among women. We've all seen many pictures of beautiful angel wing tattoos, and they don't get old!

Full back tattoos are always a site to see. They are large and usually the person proudly sporting one has put a lot of thought into the concept before getting it inked. Full back tattoos get more ooohs and awwws than most other tattoos. It's a huge commitment, obviously financially, but also because this is a large amount of prime real estate when it comes...

7. They appreciate art, even if it's only tattoo art.

The tattoo wearer may  be an art buff, or even an artist, or might be completely unaware of the world of art. One thing they know for sure, they love tattoo art. And contrary to what anyone may think, tattoo is a TRUE artform. It is an artform on a living breathing canvas. What better medium for art can you think of?

4. They are usually less quick to judge people based on appearances.

They've probably been judged because of tattoos, so they know what it feels like. They won't judge you based on a tattoo or body modification, or because you believe in self expression. In their vocabulary, "weird" or "different" isn't a dirty word. In fact, they see it as a positive characteristic!

1. They're not afraid to stand out.

This one is a no brainer. Even though tattoos are not taboo like they were in times past, inked people still stand out more than the in-inked variety. And you know what? It doesn't bother them one bit. In fact, people with tattoos like to stand out. They like to show their uniqueness. If they didn't, they probably wouldn't have gone through the time, pain, (and money) to get the ink in the first place. Now this doesn't only apply to extrovert, outgoing people. Many shy and more reserved personalities get tattoos every day.
