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.

Ok, the overall style of his tattoos is... 'interesting' (to put it this way). But the shading of the cat's fur is really good.
