Kitty Tattoos by Ryoun-Atsumi Kitty Tattoos by Ryoun-Atsumi
A girl (Woman, actually, but girl sounds more familiar) over in Subeta put out a plea; she was looking for a new tattoo, that had a black cat and a Yin-yang symbol. I tried to be clever and make them easily uploadable/downloadable via Photobucket, but that worked out horribly. So I'm doing it the way I really wanted to in the first place.

._. Not the best, my hand is so darn shaky. I had to white-out and re-black quite a few times. But these are eight I've come up with. Not too bad.

omg I was just drawing cats with yin yang symbols and saw your picture. I guess I'm not alone!

Those are great designs! I especially love that you use 69 yin yangs, instead of 96. Great work! =^_^=<3

Top right is my favorite. I don't really care for tattoos on my own person, but think they're beautiful when others get them. but if I were to get a cat tattoo, I would use the top right, or something very similar. it's gorgeous and accurately depicts a real honest to goodness cat personality! Love these!

Hello there! :D

I've been looking for a cat tattoo to honour my baby, and although you've seemed very surprised that people would want to use your designs, when I saw these I knew I'd found exactly what I was looking for.

I'd be honoured if you let me use one of your designs. Of course I would credit you and link back to this image when I uploaded the photo.

May I?

As much as I was, and still am surprised that people like my designs, I did design them to use.
And with your polite inquiry and explanation, I can hardly say no. Do go ahead, I myself have yet to find something that says "This is me" but since you have, I'll certainly not bar your way.
I've been advised that some of the gaps between the black and "white" (Skin) are too thin, and ink would bleed and blur the lines. But the tattoo artist you go to should be able to correct these.

And do please link me to the photo; I would love to see which one you get, and how it turns out.
And my eternal thanks for having asked me first. I do appreciate that kindness.
