Year of the Pig - Perfect Pig Tattoos | Buy Tattoo Needle Cartridges online
In just over 2 months time across the other side of the globe, Chinese New Year will be celebrated. 2018 was the year of the dog, and the animal that represents 2019 is the pig. The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals, and according to Chinese legend, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Unfortunately for the Pig, he was late because he overslept!
The pig is a treasured animal, and although they aren’t known for their elegance and striking looks, pigs are very realistic creatures, and are hard working highly motivated creatures. They allow themselves to enjoy life and love to be entertained. They’re not wasteful beings, and make the most of what they have.
Pigs are extremely cute, and are definitely one of the most friendliest creatures on the planet, so it’s not surprising to see lots of people with pig tattoos! Whether that’s in celebration of Chinese New Year, or just a way to pay homage to a favourite animal, there’s plenty of gorgeous pig themed tattoos out there. At Magnum Tattoo Supplies where you can buy tattoo needle cartridges online, we love cute tattoos, so why not check out these incredibly cute pig tattoos with us?
