South Korean Tattoo Artist Creates Awesome Portraits Of Cats & Dogs


Although tattoos are not illegal in South Korea, the law states they must be done by a medical doctor. However, that hasn’t stopped many tattoo shops from opening in the country and the law is rarely enforced. Although originally created as a health concern regarding the spread of HIV and other illnesses, the government is looking towards change.

This is great news, because there’s one South Korean tattoo artist who has a skill for turning people’s pets into awesome pieces of artwork. Jiran, the Seoul-based artist, forgoes the typical highly-detailed portraits and designs something a little more fun and cartoonish. Still, they look so much like the pets that we can’t help but absolutely love them! Thanks to a collection by Bored Panda and Jiran’s Instagram account, you can take a look at the great tattoos below!
