How to get an animal tattoo: A new way to get paid
When you think of getting a tattoo, you might think of the ink you choose, or the price tag, or maybe even the color.
But for pet owners, the option to get a tattoo on their pets has become a viable option, especially as people with pets are increasingly becoming less shy about having a personal message tattooed on them.
And a new website that lets pet owners get a custom tattoo on a pet is changing the way we think about pet tattoos, with some of the biggest names in the industry and celebrities signing on to help pay for the work.
The website PetArtistry.com lets pet lovers, from the big names like Bill Gates to the small, like pet blogger Lisa Ann, get their pet’s face painted with their own name on a custom piece of paper.
Pet Artistry, which launched last month, offers pet owners a range of different options to choose from, including one-of-a-kind tattoo designs, or personalized tattoos for pets like cats, dogs and guinea pigs.
But it’s also a place for people with small pets to get their personal names and addresses tattooed onto their pets’ bodies.
“When we first launched Pet Artisans, we had about 200 people that we’ve hired to do it.
And now we have another 100 or so that we’re hiring now,” said Jason Lofgren, owner of Pet Artisan.
“There are a lot of people who really love this and they love the idea of doing it for their pet.”
For pet owners who have a dog or cat, the tattooing process is quick and easy, with a pet’s name and address printed onto a piece of tissue, and then the pet’s body ink is mixed with a small amount of pet-friendly ink that will help create a distinctive tattoo design.
The tattoo artists at Pet Artists are not only making sure their pet gets their personal name and a custom message on their skin, but they’re also paying for the actual artwork itself.
For those of us who can’t afford to pay the full cost of a tattoo artist, the site also offers a small discount on pet prints for those who are on the fence.
Lofaugs says Pet Artistas is currently accepting applications for a pet print for those with allergies or medical issues.
“The main thing is for people who have allergies or are sensitive to tattoos, or for those that don’t have tattoos, the main thing with tattoos is they’re more permanent.
You can have it tattooed for life, it’s not going to go away,” Lofigons told Buzzfeed.
“And if you get an allergy, you can always get an alternative tattoo done at a pet shop or tattoo studio.”
Lofgren says PetArtisans’ design is unique and not available in other tattoo shops.
The website has a range that includes pet prints that include cats, horses, pigs, dogs, guinea pig, and a variety of other animals.
“The pet print that we are offering now is the only one we have that we have had from Pet Artist,” he said.
“We don’t want to have to pay for someone else to do this.”
The company also offers custom pet prints, and Lofigs says it’s more affordable than buying a tattoo.
“For people who don’t care about a tattoo and want something more of a casual thing, Pet Art, they have a lot more options for that,” he added.
Lofigans wife also got a tattoo with her pet while on vacation in Brazil, and he says she is very happy with the result.
“We’re very happy because the tattoo has been really good.
It’s a really great tattoo, very unique, and it looks great,” he told Buzzkill.
“She loved it.
We can’t wait to see what she does with it.”
The website also offers some other options for pet lovers looking to get custom tattoo work done on their pet.
For the $5,000 mark, PetArtists offers tattoo artists with the ability to create custom designs for pet names, names for pets with specific medical conditions, and even designs for people of different races.
But Lofagans is particularly excited about the ability for pet owner to get tattoo work on pets with different personalities.
“It’s not a hard tattoo to get, it doesn’t take very long, and we think it’s really fun for pet people to have different personalities,” he explained.
“They can wear it on their arms, or they can wear the name on their hand, or on their leg, or even on their head.”
The PetArtistas’ first tattoo on its site, which is currently available for viewing on Pet Artista’s Facebook page, was a dog named Charlie that got his own tattoo.
L ofgren says the design, which includes Charlie’s name, has been getting a lot attention online.
