the meaning changes all over the world but in Egypt cats are goddesses, thought of as untrustworthy by the Celts, as good luck due to their number of lives by muslims, as cunning by Native American Indians and attributed with clairvoyant behaviour in central Africa.

As pets we associate them with playfulness, aloofness and affection. They generally aren't seen a lot in tattoo art and when they are they are usually portraits of peoples own pets.
