Black and Gray Cat portrait tattoo by Haylo
My client wanted a photo realistic portrait of a beloved pet cat. I love doing black and gray portraiture, it was my favorite art genre when I was discovered by the Tattoo World in 2007.
I loved drawing pencil portraits and I carried that love of black and gray portraiture into my tattoo portfolio. No matter how much time goes by, black and gray portraits are my bread and butter in my tattooing career.
I have a passion for giving my clients the most realistic rendition of their animals they love that I possibly can, and my client was incredibly pleased with the outcome of her portrait tattoo.
My favorite part of any tattoo completion is seeing the smile on my clients face when the see their completed tattoo for the first time.
I love seeing my clients happy, and I love that I can share my passion of both art and animals with each and every one of them.
Most often, the cat tattoo is representative of luck, life after physical death, mystery, quiet intelligence and grace. Of course, there are many variations of feline tattoos, all of which change the deeper meaning of the art. For some people, a cat tattoo can simply represent love for a deceased pet.
