50 Fun And Cute Animal Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Animals are beautiful and thus make beautiful tattoos. They are also a way to express our human feelings and to show our true personality.

Animals can show the better but also the worst of the human being. With their colors and textures, they are making great humorous tattoos, either badass or cute.
For centuries, Art as used animals dressed and behaving as humans has been used to send message or to entertain people (that is called anthropomorphism). Cartoons has borrowed the trick and there are numerous tattoos of Bugs Bunny, Nemo or Sid from Ice Age, not only because they are funny, but also because they mean something for their owner.

In traditional tattoos, funny animals are often references to tales or proverbs. New school ones are closer to pop culture and more used for their literally cartoon side (one cannot but think of the work of Jesse Smith). But you can find funny animals in every style of tattoos, and the possibilities are unlimited.

Want to show some humor and cuteness at the same times? Here are 50 tattoos that will make you go from roaring with laughter to melting with cuteness.
