An actual shih tzu requires regular grooming, but thankfully that's not the case with a tattoo.
Shih tzu comes from the Chinese language word for lion and they're also known as the Tibetan Lion Dog. While there's debate over the exact origin of the shih tzu, the depictions of lions in traditional oriental artwork are said to have inspired the breed's name. Despite shih tzu's being referred to as toy dogs, the fact that their name means lion makes them a little more badass, especially in tattoo form.
