In the world of large, ferocious cats, panther tattoo designs have carved out a special niche of their own. While several large cats have bright spots and stripes, panthers tend to have more subdued - and, somehow, more mystical - appearances. When most people think of a panther, the black panther comes to mind.

With its large body, deep black fur and serious, all-knowing gaze, the black panther tattoo can be a woderful and fearsome design. There are many different species of panther in the world, and they've been around seemingly forever. It's not surprising that people have given so much meaning to panthers through the ages.

Origins of the Panther Tattoo.

Many times, people confuse black jaguars and leopard body art with black panther tattoo designs. In fact, a black leopard or jaguar is actually called "melanistic," a term that means black in color. The term "panther," however, is probably derived from two separate terms. In Greek, the word "pan" means "all." The word "ther" refers to beasts of prey. Therefore, panther might have been a catch-all term for all large beasts of prey. Today, though, several species fall under the umbrella term "panther."

Different names are used interchangeably with the term "panther." Depending on where you live, a panther tattoo might be referred to as a catamount, a painter, a puma, a cougar or a mountain lion. This is another reason why people become so confused about panther design; all too often, they don't even know one when they see one!

The term "panther" is used in so many different situations - and not used in so many others - that its meaning can be largely blurred and confused. If you're looking to use the panther tattoo design in art, though, these terms aren't really important.

During the 1960s, a series of films revolved around a goofy private investigator whose nickname was the Pink Panther

The Pink Panther

The French detective's real name was Jacques Clouseau, and the films were wildly popular. In fact, remakes starring Steve Martin have been appearing in theaters more recently. The opening and closing credits of the original Pink Panther films featured an animated pink panther tattoo design. That character eventually had his own cartoon series; it started appearing in the late 1960s.
