Thanks to a South Korean tattoo artist, we can now take our beloved pets everywhere we go. Sort of.

Even though tattoos are illegal in South Korea, a Seoul-based artist named Jiran is known for specializing in unique and fun pet tattoos. Instead of focusing on extreme detailing, Jiran recreates the pets in a fun way. Every single one of his cartoon-like tattoos is cheerful and brings out the pets' true spirit. You can find more of his tattoos on Instagram.

Not bad for the drawing of a six year old! If only it would not be permanent. (/irony)
