For ages women have always felt a strong connection to cats, and cat tattoos are symbolic of that connection. Usually representing independence and comfort, they can also be linked to longevity and rebirth as many are said to have nine lives.
Cat tattoos are steeped in cultural history as their images date back as far as 4000 BC in Egyptian hieroglyphs. There are three types of cat tattoos that women seem to use the most often, cartoon, portrait, and tribal. Each one of these designs carries its own meaning. Cartoon cat tattoos are playful and fun, while portrait cat tattoos tend to be a picture of the woman’s own cat or an image of her favorite breed.
Selecting a cat tattoo is enjoyable and will attempt to capture the majestic qualities of this mysterious feline.
