    Top 20 Beaver Tattoos

    The second-largest rodent in the world and the national emblem of Canada, the beaver is one tattoo choice that you would think would be sexualised in some way, especially given the current trend in tattooing. Shockingly, only one these tattoos is lewd (if you know French-Canadian slang) but none are NSFW. There is, however, one common theme when it comes to beaver tattoos. In this post you’ll find several beavers in lumberjack attire – rather fitting given their tendency for felling of trees to create dams and building their homes (lodges). To save you from searching through 2500-plus images on Instagram –  much of which is unrelated content due to a shop…

    Top 40 Raccoon Tattoos

    Whether it be breaking into a pastry shop and stealing donuts, noisily going through trash cans at night, or climbing a 25-storey building like the now infamous #MPRraccoon in Minnesota, raccoons are getting into mischief wherever they go.

    Top 20 Opossum Tattoos

    Opossums could be described as the not-so-attractive distant marsupial cousin of native Australian possums. Often appearing scruffy and bearing their sharp teeth, opossums don’t receive nearly the same levels of animal appreciation as other species from the Americas. These tattoos are certainly doing their part in changing perceptions about opossums. The black and white furry, nocturnal and nomadic critters appear nothing but endearing and absolutely adorable in this selection of 20 tattoos.

    Top 15 Chimpanzee Tattoos

    When sourcing images for an animal tattoo it’s important to remember that other people have probably visited the same websites as you and viewed the exact same images. Don’t fall into the trap of taking the first photo from Google Images, and definitely don’t copy another person’s animal tattoo. As you’ll see with these 15 tattoos, each chimpanzee is clearly unique. While many are in the realism style that’s where the similarities end – this is what we want to see more of across the board. Just as not every tattooer can do portraits, not all can nail realistic animal tattoos. You need to spend time looking through online portfolios…
