Did you know: there are 17 species of hedgehog, but only certain species can be kept as pets in some areas of the world.
Hedgehogs are native to only Asia, Africa and Europe, but were introduced to New Zealand where they are now (sadly) considered a pest. Spiky like porcupines and echidnas, hedgehogs are not related to either animal.
Hedgehog is the title character in Beatrix Potter’s book The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle. If you love Beatrix Potter then you could get a tattoo inspired by the book’s illustrations or have a subtle nod to them included in the design.
If it’s just the animal that you’re interested in, have some fun with your tattoo and explore all the different styles and artists you have to choose from.
We managed to find more tattoos than there are species of hedgehog – enjoy!
