Top 25 Platypus Tattoos

The platypus is a native Australian animal so strange in appearance that, as recent as 1799, actual scientists believed a preserved platypus to be fake/a hoax.

The animal emblem of the state of New South Wales, the platypus is one of only five species of monotremes or egg-laying mammal.

Don’t be fooled by its cute exterior, the male platypus is a venomous mammal with a spur on its foot which causes pain to humans, much like the tattooing process.

An elusive Australian animal, platypus reside in streams and rivers along the east of Australia. Although, unlike kangaroos, various bird species, possums, and even koalas, it is unlikely for even the Australian population to ever see a platypus in the wild. You could visit a zoo or wildlife sanctuary, or you could check out these top 25 platypus tattoos instead.
