18 Gorgeous Paw Print Tattoos For Anyone Whose Dog Is Part Of The Family

People often get tattoos of names, objects, places, even phrases, as a way to memorialize something personal. And it doesn't get much more personal than the kind of relationship you have with a pet. In a recent trend, people are getting inked with paw prints—but not the generic ones you’ve seen before. These tattoos are of their own dogs’ paws, and the designs are pretty darn cool. Check them out in the list below!
