It is a scientific fact that there is nothing more pure than the love between dogs and their humans.
Dogs are silly. They never have any idea what they're doing, they sleep far more than is necessary, they bark at invisible ghosts in the corner but are remarkably quiet when someone is robbing your house (haha, no seriously what is wrong with my dog) and they don't like other dogs because they're too... intense.
Dogs are ridiculous and I won't hear another word about it.
All of us want to be closer to our dogs, emotionally, physically, spiritually etc., so some humans have found the perfect way to make sure their pupper/doggo is always with them: a tattoo. Of their paw print. AKA hand print. AKA foot print. AKA... fingerprint?
DO ALL DOGS HAVE UNIQUE PAW PRINTS THERE IS SIMPLY NO WAY TO KNOW.
Is there anything wrong with treating your dog like a child? The Mamamia Out Loud team discuss.
I googled it - dog paw prints are not like human finger prints but no two are the same so yes, it's still special.
There are a few reasons people get paw print tattoos, and not all of them have to do with memorialising a particular pet. For some, paw prints can symbolise moving forward or moving past a particularly challenging time. Others use them to represent children or friends. These are some of the best kinds of paw tattoos around.
A love heart paw print
It's quite popular for people to get a tattoo of a paw print, with details added like love hearts. The love heart is obviously because we all love dogs unconditionally.
Your dog's face in a paw print
Dogs have paws, hence the paw print. But we also want to look at our dog's faces all the time so this one prints your dog's face inside the paw print.
That dog no doubt likes this tattoo very much.

Your dog's... literal paw print. In black.
This dog just straight up walked in black paint and then on his mummy's arm and she got it tattooed.
Tiny hidden paw prints
These paw prints are subtle, behind the ear, but your dog knows they're there. Because your dog knows everything.
Paw print AND collar
For when you forget your dog is/was a dog, so you get a collar too. And a name tag.
Only your dog knows their paw prints
'Mumma, that's my feets!'
Mummy got a tattoo of your feet.
And it's our little secret.
