Welcome to the Tattoo Zoo! A wilder place than the jungle ever could be, it’s packed with dreamers, risk-takers and free spirits whose personalities are as colorful as their ink. 

Most creatures are just trying to blend in, but these guys wanna stand out. Why? Because some animals just want to look different. Each character and animal are designed collaboratively with the tattoo industry. The artwork is designed and inked by tattoo artists from around the world.

Tattoo Zoo plushies are 15" tall.


Meet Buddy the Sailor Monkey!

When you’re the son of an Admiral, the bar is pretty high. And it’s a miracle Buddy even graduated from the naval academy, considering he was always monkeying around. But hey, he made it--even if he is outranked by everyone except the guy who polishes the urinals and has spent over $10,000 on dramamine pills.

Serving as the cook on a battleship, Buddy can make a 5-star meal out of just a 50-gallon drum of ketchup and a crate of white bread. Other than that, they mostly just use him for ballast.

But there’s more to life than being a fine sailor, or...even a halfway decent one. As the best poker player on his vessel, Buddy has taken his helpless shipmates for tens of thousands of dollars, and nearly every penny has been spent wooing the women he meets at each port. Buddy has single handedly propped up the florist industries of Crete, Marseille, and Istanbul.

It doesn’t hurt that, as a Sagittarius, he has an excellent sense of humor. He’s quick with a joke and his charm seems to get him out of trouble as often as it gets him into it. If you’re going to spend 7 months rocking back and forth on the open sea, there are worse guys you could bunk with.
