Cattoo Pictures

Cattoos are cat tattoos. Perhaps, that is obvious. There are some amazing cat tattoos out there. Tattoos are growing in popularity. High profile individuals such as David Beckham indirectly promote them. He is a massive fan of them. What is the reason behind their popularity? I’ll have to speculate.

In an increasingly difficult world there is a need to assert one’s individuality. A cattoo is a statement that declares that you are an individual with rights and you love cats which means you have a sensitive side combined with intelligence. I am almost certain that 90% of the people who opt to have a cattoo are young women. It may give them confidence as well. Although I am not sure about that.

But to have a large, bold tattoo of a cat on your arm or back or anywhere else is a big decision. It is a decision for life.

Below are five outstanding examples. That does not mean they are the best.

The first one is the Beckoning Cat (Maneki Neko cat) that is seen in Japan and which brings good luck to businesses. The left foreleg is raised and beckons you in. The wave is different to the usual method as the palm is down rather than facing up.

The next one is on someone’s right hand. It seems this person has decided that he or she is not going to work in mainstream employment again because a cattoo like this must be an obstacle to being employed. Employers don’t like people with tattoos. This is probably because in the past people with tattoos were stereotyped as bad.

Next is one of the biggest ones I have seen. The cat looks like a cougar but it is not done that well. Perhaps the woman thinks of herself as a cougar, a woman who preys on younger men for sex.


I am guessing but the next one appears to be a celebration of a lost cat companion who was a Maine Coon. The ear tufts give away the breed of cat together with the strong face and tabby coat. Maine Coons are often tabby cats. It seems to occupy a large part of the person’s back or have I got that wrong?

The next one almost looks embossed onto the skin. As is usual, the tattoo is on the upper arm.

Gone! Sorry.

  1. WOW…..those are nice looking tats. I dare not show this to my dear, little British friend. She will want one. She has had one on her backside for almost 30 years.

  2. Nice “Cattoo’s”. Tattoo’s are becoming popular especially the “Temporary Tattoo’s” that are removable, a sign of fashion and a statement .I myself have 3 permanent tattoo’s on my body, all nature tattoo’s, the first tattoo of the snake done about 2 decades ago.On my back have the tattoo of a Snake and a eagle while the the “Pisecean Star sign” of fishes is on my belly.Would have liked to add a “Cattoo” but then 3 tattoo’s on a body is enough of body art.

      • I have a tattoo which I had done in Kerala many years ago. I think they are great. They can be disastrous but only for people who make the wrong choices. I have no problem with them at all. I’d gladly have a tattoo of Red done. I know if it were done well and tastefully that I would never be sorry I did it. It’s a character thing. Some people just can’t do it. Others can.

  3. I love them but I wouldn’t ever have a tattoo myself because of a promise I made years ago to our late dad.
    He was a tattoo artist and although our brother had many, neither our late mother nor Barbara or I did, because being of the old fashioned school he didn’t think women should wear tattooos and made us promise never to have one.
    Having seen toughie type grown men faint at the sight of the needle or after the job was done, I didn’t take much convincing lol
    He did all his own designs and some were wild cats, I love to see tattooos, but as I will never have one and love cats so much I’ve left in my wishes a cat shaped floral wreathe for my coffin.

  4. I know just the place to get that wreath Ruth LOL. But back to the subject I hate tattoos, good luck to anyone who wants them but I fail to see the point of having a picture drilled into your skin, stuck in the dark ages on this one like my old dad, I think they look bad on women especially (well the ones that show anyway) and wonder what will happen when today’s youth gets old and wrinkly and all those tatts start sagging nastily amidst the wrinkles and bingo wings. I love cats and I love pictures of cats but no way would I want on embedded on my backside 🙂

  5. An image of a cat was once a common type of Russian prison tattoo 🙂 There were strict regulations governing the wearing of various such tattoos.
