Tattoos of pets

Featured on Episode 7


Companion animals are being captured in tattoos.

On the latest episode we hear from two people who have got inked with the likeness of their beloved pet.

The Timber Tattoo's Shawn O'Connor created the Mickey image on musician and record producer, Nik Kozub's left bicep.  Although they aren't the only tattoos Shawn does, he usually sees one to two clients per month to create pet portraits.

Myke Peters at Lucky Strike inked music librarian, Arianne Smith-Piquette, with an image of her companion animal, Frieda. Arianne and her husband adopted the small dog from CaliCan Rescue, to come join the family's cat, Astrid. The next tattoo Arianne got was of Astrid, the cat as an owl cat.
