Humorous Cow Tattoo

Most of the cow tattoos portray long lashed, trusting eyes of the cow that show their gentleness. This gentleness only is the epitome of what a cow is considered in the mind of someone acquiring one for meat. A trust factor is also shown by the funny way of standing out the ears at one side.

Then comes the choice of colour of the cow. You can choose any colour, depending upon your imagination what you think of a traditional cow in your mind. Also, the way of drawing the cow is such that the cow is facing out directly, making it appear as if you are standing right in front of it and looking into its eyes.
