tatooed dogUpscale dog owners in New York City are turning to new decorative techniques for their beloved dogs. Cutting edge cuts are so boring and summer ready dogs need to have that extra something to make their public statements. So why not make that bare skin bark for you? Dogs have long had real tattoos of their owners’ social security numbers to protect the dogs from being lost. But now some fashionable NYC dog owners are moving way past things like baths and painted nails to temporary body art. It’s tramp-stamping for the chi-chi canine hotties.

Celebrity dog groomer Jorge Bendersky is helping his Upper East Side clientele keep their dogs at the cutting edge of canine tattoo art. He says that when dogs get their summer shaves and short cuts they have bare skin that needs accessorizing. What better way to garner maximum attention than sport a colorful tattoo on their bum? Defenders of dog tattoo art claim that dogs get a thrill from all the positive attention of having body art. Humans give them attention which adds to doggy happiness. It’s a no pain way to gain center stage. The tattoos cost about $100 and involve only stencils and other canine-safe materials. The temporary artwork is generally applied to the dog’s hips or tailbone using stencils, canine safe glue and glitter.

The next step in this craze should be matching tattoos for human and dog companion. How about complementary tattoos for dog and doggie mom?
