The cat, Gizmo, is not only her pet but an enormous tattoo on Kathrin's upper thigh.

The ink is created by a Swiss company called Skin46. The ink is created by drawing medically clean organic carbon out of animal or human hair.

Five grams of the hair is all the lab needs to process the ink and send it back but it is not cheap, a batch of the ink costs $720 (R8495).

“It’s common to have a tattoo of a loved one in so many different ways, shapes and forms. There’s no limit to how a relationship‘s bonds can be celebrated in tattoo art,” the Skin46 website states. “Skin46 ink enables the next level of emotional connection between the person and the tattoo and takes ink one step deeper.”
