A cat tattoo can be a memorial for pet or a graphic representation of something deeper. In most ancient religions and mythology, cats are associated with feminine and lunar qualities.
They represent grace, beauty, fertility, nurturing, psychic abilities, creativity, enigma and intuition.
Cats are also often linked to magic and the spirit world. Since ancient times, cats are said to aid women who practice witchcraft in magical feats such as clairvoyance and shape-shifting. The Celtics, for instance, believed that cats were guardians of the underworld and keepers of esoteric knowledge. In Japan, there is a belief that cats can walk between worlds.
