What you're seeing are “temporary tattoos” with paw prints, snowflakes and hearts trimmed into the fur of dogs! Created by the concepts of dog groomers Jessica Allegri, 26, and Amanda Marshall, 29, of Hatfield, Hertfordshire of Groomers on the Green who came up with the idea of “pooch patches” after experimenting on their own boxer Ky. Since then, their clients have quickly caught on to the concept. 
With the whole process taking approximately an hour to shave using clippers with the tattoo lasting about 14 weeks, requests for the dog tattoo have been in demand. “It was a quiet day and we thought it would be fun to shave a paw print on my dog, who comes to work with me,” said Ms Allegri reported the Daily Mail. “Our customers were really impressed and asked where he had had it done. Since then we have had lots of people asking for pooch patches and we've done snowflakes, flowers and hearts.”

MORE THAN BASIC SHAPES According to Ms. Allegri, one client even requested to have a One Direction symbol shaved onto the dog for her daughter. “For the dogs it's just like having a hair-cut and doesn't hurt,” said Ms. Allegri. Jessica Allegri and Amanda Marshall, the owners of Groomers on the Green are currently trademarking the treatment.

This is not new. I have been doing this to my own dog since 2008. I don't do hearts or pawprints but usually celtic designs on his hind quarters or other patterns. I stopped doing it for awhile because he has dark skin and a lot of people thought I had branded him and were horrified. It was pretty cool though and my dog actually loved it because he likes being pampered (80 lb doberman) and anytime I got the clippers out, he would spin around and then lay on his spot on the floor so I could start. In any case, it's not really new. Other people in my area started doing it as well. News is selective.
