I've always been kind of obsessed with woodland creatures, (probably due to the combination of mountain men hunters in my family and growing up in the sticks...) but it had never occurred to me that people would keep these precious animals as pets all Snow White style. (And to be fair, it's probably a bad idea, wild animals deserve to be in the wild, plus Monty would be insanely jealous.) Naturally after seeing these ahhhhdorable photos I was a) inspired to look up every possibility of my own baby deer, I was right, it's a bad idea... and b) subsequently googled every pretty deer tattoo I could find. I've been really lusting after a hammerhead shark on my foot ever since I saw Lauren's new tattoo, but I could also see a pretty deer in my future soon!!! (At this rate I'm going to be out of skin soon... oops.) Anyhoo, here are just a few of the oh-so-pretty deer tattoos that are currently melting my heart.

*I first saw Tacha's tattoos on Danielle's blog and was immediately smitten with her papa deer and mama owl shins. They look straight out of a storybook!

* I've always been a little obsessed with cameos, (have you seen my hipster cameo collection??) and I'm loving this doe-eyed deer. It looks like something totally out of the Victorian era, but with a pretty deer instead!

* I like to think that if you combined Mr. Darcy, (my faaaavorite Jane Austen man,) and a deer you would get this tattoo. He's just so dapper.
