Fungus Cat Tribute Tattoo


Shortly after I posted the story of Natalie's touching Bucky cattoo, Rachel wrote in with her own tale of a beloved kitty gone too soon, whose memory has been kept alive with some amazing custom ink.

Rachel writes:

My friend has this tattoo in memory of his cat Fungus (yes, Fungus!) who was hit by a car a few years ago. Never have I met such a beloved cat and our friends were all devastated. Such a great cat deserved a proper memorial, and I designed this tattoo based on a photo I took of Fungus while he was alive.

This pic was right after it was done, so it's a bit red. The best part - we can headbutt the tattoo just like we could headbutt Fungus (he was the king of headbutts)!

King of Headbutts

Special thanks to Rachel for sharing Fungus with us! I think her tattoo design came out beautifully, and is a fitting tribute to a sweet kitty who will never be forgotten.

Do you have any cat tattoos you'd like to share? Email me at catsparella@gmail.com!

I'll have a tattoo of my cat in january, when I'll turn 18. I think it will be the very first tattoo I'll do and maybe the most important one :)

Hmmm, I asked the Human if she would get a giant tattoo of me (I mean, why wait till I'm gone?), but she just rolled her eyes and said, "Suuuuuuure" but I think she was being sarcastic. Sigh.

That is very neat to have a tattoo of your cat. And that sure is a good one of Fungus. I have never heard of any one doing this before. Take care.

You know, I am the craziest of the Crazy Cat Ladies, but I just don't think I could do a cat tattoo. I'm allergic to pain for one thing. =^..^=
