greyhound tribal tattoo by ssslipgrrrl greyhound tribal tattoo by ssslipgrrrl
my art teacher made us decorate our portfolios for class, and I sketched this on mine. I didn't intend for it to be a tattoo design, but I think it would make a good one for someone who likes greyhounds

Okay so I did end up getting it done this summer, this is the only picture I have of it (it was healing at the time, hence why it is scabby haha)…

I linked to your profile in the comments too!

Thankyou for the awesome design :3

I just wanted to let you know that I got your design as a tattoo today. I was going to ask your permission but I everything fell into place so quickly (right artist, etc) that I just got it done. So thanks. :)…

You can see a few pictures of my Greyhound in my gallery.

I've been looking for a greyhound tattoo and this one is awesome! It kind of matches the style of my butterfly tattoo. Just wanted to make sure it's okay to use your art. (??) Thanks so much!

I love this - I have a retired racing greyhound and also had one that passed away. They are the most wonderful and sweet dogs. I have been wanting to get a tattoo to commemorate the one that passed away and this one is perfect - so simple and beautiful. If it is ok I would love to use this. Thank you!

Jane thanks for the inspiring sketch. I'm getting this tattoo on my back in mid Feb. Will help me celebrate my love for the 2 hounds who own me, Diablo n Angelino.

Jane: I was going to get a tattoo of my beautiful Greyhound Meli, who died earlier this year. I still grieve over her loss. Then a friend send this, and my wife suggested that I get this instead of a picture. Because I love the breed so much, and we have another Grey who is sweet and beautiful, I think I'm going to have your design duplicated on my arm or back. It's really terrific.

I love this as well. I work in the greyhound racing business and on 9-11-09 my good friend, coworker, and classmate was killed in a car accident along with another classmate...they were 16...and ive been looking up ideas to put together my own memorial tattoo to remember all the times him and i had working with the racers..this is perfect... im getting that feeling like i'm going to cry now talking about it..thats how i know this will be perfect for a tattoo for myself...i dont want to copy it perfectly exact but i would really appreciate it if you'd let me use this sketch and add to it for a tattoo when i turn 18, i'm only 17 but excited to permanently place a friend in ink. please post a reply on my page, not this picture, so i can see your reply when you do respond.

Would you let me copy this as a tattoo?? I love my Greyhound Speedy and this just sums him up perfectly! He is a retired Greyhound that never raced but I love him to bits and am looking to make something special to remember him forever..

Of course! I'm incredibly flattered that you like my design so much. Greyhounds are wonderful, aren't they? My first dog was a greyhound pup (he never raced either, but he was rescued from a track). He's an old man now and living with my mom but I still adore him. If you end up getting the tat, send me a pic, I'd love to see how it turns out!

Wow I love that, and I adore greyhounds, I have one myself ^^ I love the way the front foot curls round

Well done, It's head especially. No unneccesary detail would make it a relativley painless tattoo
