Animal tattoos do not only permit its bearers to feel identified with the personality or the characteristics of the chosen animal, but also, to show to other members of society his/her inclinations, passions, or simply love towards a pet. When this is the case, we can observe tattoos of, for example, elephants in those people that express openly their love for Africa, or wildlife, or conservationism, as well as fish, sharks and whales in those that carry a life connected with the sea. More examples of these tattoos are found in naturists, biologists, oceanographers, wildlife photographers, virgin spaces tour guides, documentary makers, etc.
This is an election that turns more popular everyday, since global warming and climatic changes are awaking in people, more and more every time, an awareness towards conservationism and protection of nature and animal life. It is thus that many animal tattoos, come from the impulse of people to show their respect and consciousness for the environment and its species.
On the other hand there are those that feel a special and inexplicable bond to some wild animal, which motivates them to adorn their environment and their body with this special animal. And by environment, we mean all that surrounds them, since these people choose their favorite animal in the majority of the objects that they buy, whether it is decoration objects, decals or utensils. There are lots of animals that respond to these cases, some of them more common, e.g. eagles, horses, tigers, dolphins, etc., and some a bit more unusual, as platypuses, Tasmanian devils, or aye-ayes.
Another fashionable conduct is that of tattooing one's own pets somewhere on the body. This is becoming very popular, as pets occupy a place ever more important in people's lives. Because of it, it is increasingly more common to see the faces of cats, dogs, ferrets or tortoises (many times accompanied by its names) in backs, shoulders, arms and legs.
