A cat isn't just a pet. Since ancient times it has been a symbol of grace and poise. In ancient Egypt, they had cat goddesses and even mummified some of them just like humans. Egyptians held felines in the highest esteem, and killing one, even by accident, often resulted in death penalties.

To honor our feline friends, Bored Panda made a list of the best cat tattoo ideas ever. Upvote the ones you'd love to ink on your skin and submit your own cat tattoos if you already have one!

That is really very cool, could be a good tattoo for someone fighting depression, "Will always land on my feet."

It's a neat idea, it's really well executed, but it's disturbing me emotionally that it's across the whole width of the chest ;) My mind is rebelling against this, it feels like it should be a small tattoo :)
