Yes please: FarkinHostile: Nothing wrong with it. I'd tattoo my dog if the circumstances were right.

Like if it was a really meaningful tattoo to the dog?


+1 internet

In my dog's case, I'm pretty sure she'd get a tattoo of her blue squeaky bone.

que lastima: INeedAName: I had a disciplinary meeting with a student and their parent this week. The parent also brought along their 15 month old... with pierced ears. WTF?

it's certainly not unusual to pierce an infant's ears, especially in the hispanic culture. mine were pierced when i was like 3 months old. when you think about it, it's a good way to essentially erase the "rebelliousness" of piercing. since mine were always that way, it's just been no big deal to me. i went through my teenage years without getting any more piercings--or any tattoos for that matter.


Srsly. Piercing a baby's ears has to be the biggest non-issue ever. Unlike circumcision (NOT A THREADJACK), it's completely reversible just by not wearing earrings in the holes.

mbillips: Wut? The Doberman breed was created in the late 19th century to be watchdogs. The only "work" they were supposed to do is bite bad people.


From what I've read, they were used pretty extensively as a deer hunting dogs, and for wild boar.

mortimer_ford: The First Four Katy Perry Albums: What is that tattoo even supposed to be? It just looks like a bunch of random splotches of ink.

It's a feline character for peace.


Either that or beef with broccoli

dkulprit: My dog was given a tattoo when he got neutered to show he was neutered. When we adopted him we didn't know that and thought it was permanent marker of some sort. I don't see what the big deal is. As other people have pointed out, livestock is treated way worse. Why is giving a tattoo to your dog who is not permanently scarred or damaged such a big deal?


A dog I got from the shelter has a little green mark tattooed near where his nuts used to be to show he was de-nutted. I figured you'd be able to tell by the lack of balls, but I'm not an animal doctor, so I'm really not qualified to question these things.

/had a ferret who had a mark tattooed on his ear to show he was no longer swinging big balls.

Oh jeez were we go.  Nothing get's most people fired up more than if a guy thinks somebody is critizing his junk.

You've read weird things. Karl Dobermann invented the breed between 1870 and 1890 to protect him in his tax-collecting business. Their ears and tails were docked from the start, to make them look badass. Pretty much exclusively police and war dogs ever since. I'm sure some people have used them for hunting, but they weren't bred for that. ACTUAL deer hounds don't have their ears and tails docked.

They should give one with every vasectomy, too.  Men lie to get laid.

Someday, that pit bull is gonna snap and tattoo a poor little girl.

I swear I've posted that before. Damned repeats!

HotWingConspiracy: I'm not in outrage mode, but really, why put the animal through that? He sure doesn't want a tattoo and you can just get him chipped for ID.


The chip only works if you get the animal to a place with a reader.  A lot of animals are found by normal people who take the animal home, and then decide to keep it.  I actually think tattoeing the animal is a great idea.  It's like a permanent collar.

Why would you need a tattoo to be able to determine if a male dog has been neutered?  I can tell just by walking behind them at the dog park.


No idea, we rescued him. On his belly on the leg where there is almost no hair is a circle with an arrow (almost like the male sign) pointing towards his empty sack. It is about 2.5 inches long by 1 inch wide. As I said we thought it was permanent marker, after his 3rd bath and it didn't fade we asked our vet during a checkup what it was and they said sometimes vets will do that to let other vets know that the dog was neutered.

My wife is a Vet Tech and when two of our pets were fixed, the anesthesiologist working there at the time also did tattoos on the side so we went ahead and had them inked... Many customers that came through there knew of this side work and requested them as well.
I couldn't imagine someone trying to the same on a non-sedated dog or cat.

good point.  but he is an army veteran, though.  he should get points for that.  ok, maybe semi-citizen.

boohyah: right firstly to i,d a dog it's NORMAL to tattoo a number or initials not a hulking great design for which the dog would have needed to be either kept sedated or tied down. no way in hell would any dog sit there and let you tattoo them. this guy is abusing his position as the owner to cause permanent damage to his animals, putting them thru multiple unnecessary procedures, a dog does not NEED to have it's ears trimmed, tail docked or anything else. ANYONE who does this should be refused ownership of any animal

Monkeyfark Ridiculous: Well, it's not exactly unheard of to tattoo a puppy...

"RSPCA Australia supports humane ear tattooing (while under anaesthesia) of animals to signify their desexed status and avoid accidental repetitive surgery. A standard tattoo symbol indicating desexed status should be applied to the left ear of all cats and dogs at the time of surgery."

/on the other hand, this guy seems like a douche who was using his dog for doodling
//the fark? "accidental repetitive surgery"? my dog grimaced when I read that


Your dog's brass balls be so big it took 4 tries to get them to come off. Then they grew back.
