    Does anyone on here have a Sphynx cat tattoo? I would really like to see one. I would like to get one but I don't know how to capture their beauty.

      Indeed a couple of members do have a sphynx tattoo. I remember seeing a couple of members showing off their ink. Sorry, can't remember who. I ink up my kitty. OK, not real ink.

        There are a few members with sphynx tatts.
        I have a cat tatt in memory of Stripe but she was not a sphynx.

        I say we all go get our Sphynx tattoos together. Lets call Kat Von-D out in LA and have her do them for us! She had Ludwig (RIP) so she can capture the beauty of our kick-a$$ cats!! Maybe she'll give us a "multi-person" discount. :LOL:

        I've seen an amazing one on here but can't remember her name(sorry) You are sooo right about Kat doing it , I couldn't think of someone who could be able to capture the sphynx better than her! I wonder how much they charge for tatts anyway??

        I have tried to contact her (Kat VonD) a couple of times and no avail. I even drove to Chicago to see if her friend could give me a tattoo. Her tattoo shop was closed on a Saturday night. I have no idea how much she would charge. Probably double what regular tattoo artists charge. :Hysterical:

        What kind of tattoo shop is closed on a Saturday night?!?! LOL That must of been a bummer. I can't wait to see your tat once you finally get it. I'm planning on getting something similar to the Lair logo on my right foot this summer.

        I have a tattoo that incorporates both of my breeds- Sphynx and Savannahs :) I got it last year and I love it. My Mum has one of just the Sphynx, minus the big spotted hairy cat.

        Kat Von Dee or however you spell it overcharges for tattoos- if you read up on reviews of her shop, you get the quick impression that you can find better tatto0 artists (or at least, as good) for much less.

        I found an artist I liked, paid her to draw my design, and then went to the tattoo shop and had them make flash of it and therefore my tat is an exact replica of the artwork :)

        Here is the artwork... My tat is identical- probably about 3-4 inches tall.

        Awesome - yes Kat Von D does overcharge. She is like Gap, you pay for the brand not the product!! However, I do want a tat from her just for bragging rights. lol

        You have Savannahs??? That is the other breed we are hoping for someday. They run crazy expensive so its not in the cards right now but I've love to meet one one day atleast. They are amazing cats!!! Do you have photos? Do you Sphynx and Savannah get along ok? oo I have so many questions! lol PM me sometime!!

        I will PM you :) Yeah, they can run crazy expensive, but it's kinda like the Sphynx community where if you take the time to get to know a few people here and there, it definitely helps versus just purchasing a kitten and taking your time!

        But for the general audience- SVs and Sphynxes get along very well typically :)

        I meant... versus not taking your time and just purchasing a kitten- LOL. For anyone interested in the breed, it pays to join the online lists and just jump in and chat... Even if one isn't in the stars for the next few years...

          I like the Savannah's too. I think they're a little too rich for my blood. There are some good Youtube videos with Savannahs. I love there size.

          One of my all time favorite videos.

          Is Geothermal your cats name? Because that is fabulous for a sphynx! He looks a lot like my nofuratu. Lovely nose!
