A fine line Jack Russell like this really shows how you can take a simple concept and say everything that you need.

Sometimes we raise our best friends with friends of their own, and this beautiful pair of Jack Russel puppies in this tattoo is a great example of two little best friends caught in the ‘amber’ of body art and kept forever.

8. Jack Russell Dotwork Tattoo

Here we have another example of some fine artwork with this Jack Russell dotwork tattoo. 

Photorealistic tattoos can sometimes be too hard to wear and by breaking down the art into a more basic form we can keep things recognizable without letting them be too painful.

It also has a style of it’s own, just as our dogs have their own distinctive personalities, and that’s a hard thing to communicate to the world when you’ve known it so well firsthand.

9. Watercolour Jack Russell Tattoo

With eye-catching purples and blues, this little dog really sticks out, and it’s almost what they are like in real-life. 

People who aren’t dog lovers don’t quite get just how personable these little furry friends can be, and it’s really larger than life.

A watercolour Jack Russel tattoo like this one goes a long way towards communicating just how strong and sassy these tiny personalities can be!

10. Jack Russell Paw Print Tattoo

A pawprint is like a human footprint, wending it’s way through our lives, and it’s a much less painful way to remember them than a photorealistic or even obscure depiction. 

It also has a heavy message, that wherever we have walked, these prints were always beside us and it’s something that the wearer of this tattoo obviously wished to say and to keep.

11. Jack Russell Face Tattoo

Those little faces mean so much. Waking us in the morning and playing with us when we are sad. A Jack Russell face tattoo like this preserves a beloved face and saves it for all time.

Whether you have a Jack Russell of your own that you wish to remember, a Bichon Frise, or another breed, a tattoo like this lets you always remember what your best friend looks like.

You don’t need a loud and colorful tattoo to make a statement and the black and white Jack Russell in this picture makes a fine statement in this regard. 

The contrast of dots and bold lines makes all of the statement that is needed, holding fast a personality that obviously meant the world to someone.

Some people like to ‘say it in symmetry’, and this is a piece of body art that gets the job done and does it with style. 

You can still see the personality overflowing from this dog who obviously was or is still quite important to someone, but it’s been expressed abstractly and with a touch of style.

All you can do is look upon it, smile, and say a silent ‘bravo’.

20. Jack Russell Tattoo on Finger

Some of us prefer to keep our hearts close and quiet, and while a finger tattoo is a pretty bold statement, a Jack Russell tattoo on the finger like this with a minimalist design helps to make the statement that this animal was important, but the details are no one’s business but your own!

The combination of location and a minimalist statement really make for an amazing tattoo, don’t you think?
