Silly Furries

by
There are a few things that I find really funny about the furry fandom and one of them is tattoos. So, I see some art once in a while with someone's anthropomorphic character with tattoos on their body. It's not really a bad thing. Any artist has the right for artistic freedom. If you really did think about it, tattoos would be almost impossible to put on a character with fur. If the fur was short enough then I would think you would be able to put a temporary tattoo over the fur. Long fur would make it impossible to put an image on or in the fur. There's also the fact that fur grows out. Let me ask you this, would you put a tattoo over your hair? More realistically you would just dye your hair.

In any case, it's all art. Everybody's fursona is important to the person who created it. Have a good night gents. :3

It is possible to shock or augment the fur to make it a different color then the rest. and in one cause a person explained it that they put a dye in the skin that would be picked up by the hair root and would permeantly change the fur color above it.

The tattoo thing is something I've wondered about, too.

Are those methods actually used in real life?  It would be neat to have a real life explanation for this.

This may seem silly to me if I wasn't busy trying to apply logic to things like cocks as big or bigger than the character, cock tongues, characters with relatives that aren't even the same species, and of course the ever popular black-hole butts.

More possible than 30 foot cocks. X3 Still, the normal copout is, "It's just fantasy."

If you shave down a dalmatian or a leopard, their skin is spotted in the same pattern as the fur. So it seems to me it would be possible to tattoo the skin in such a way that new fur would actually grown in that color.

Don't believe that's fiction, believe that's fact. But don't quote me. :P

I would be okay with blurry tattoos if I had short fur. :3

You're a bunny, how long can your fur be? :P  I mean, you're not like a border collie or a sheep dog. :P

the way I explain it in an upcoming story is like this

" They boys all stopped and starred as a passed a furtooists stall. A complicated procedure that only specially trained artists could perform.  They watched as a little dog in thick spectacles dipped a long needle into a bottle of ink, pressed it to the skin and tapped on it hard with a small lead mallet.   The horse under the needle winced at the pain, but judging by the intricate patterns along her arms it was something she was used to.   The new one across the chestnut mare’s back was still blank for now.  The Furtoo wouldn’t show up for a month or two, since the ink is injected into the root of each strand of fur permanently staining it in the new colors as it grows back.   Judging buy the number of different ink pots set next to the little yellow dog this horse was getting something colorful and complex.


Its based on what i've seen of ancient Hawaiian tattoo practices I have no Idea if it would work this way for fur, and the Furtoo has to grow out but it seems plausable enough a explination to run with

I agree. Dye makes sense, but I've seen some tiny, detailed, and crazy complex ones that are far too precise to be dyed fur.

Way back in the day, I had a firefox character who was tribal. He had tats on his skin under the fur, which were a guideline on how to dye the fur above for special occasions. He didnt do the dying so much, seeing as he lived in the city, but the tattoos were a comittment to his tribe that you couldnt arrive. Even if you shaved him bald, he'd still be wearing his tribe markings.

Its a nifty little idea, even if he was a nasty little mary sue otherwise. Most people are at first...
