Dogs are one of the best pets you can have for a number of reasons: They reduce our stress levels, they help us live longer, and honestly, they're just so damn adorable, it's hard not to want them by your side 24/7! If you want a more ~permanent~ way of remembering your furry friend, why not get a tattoo in their likeness? It makes a great first ink, TBH. (Wondering where to place it?
