Despite its unusual appearance and special appeal, the hedgehog is not very popular in the art of tattooing. However, at the same time, a tattoo with the image of this animal cannot escape anyone’s attention.

 

Hedgehog Tattoo

It is impossible not to recognise the hedgehog. Its spines are hollow hairs made stiff with keratin, which usually fall off when the animal matures and are replaced with adult spines․ Hedgehog spines can also fall out as a result of severe illness or deep stress. The thorns of the hedgehog are not poisonous. They protect the hedgehog from external threats. In case of danger, the hedgehog immediately turns into a ball, and the spines stick out, becoming a real protector for this amazing animal.

Some species of desert hedgehog, whose number of spines is not enough for self-defence, have to use other self-defence measures. Rather, they can run away in a dangerous situation, or attack with their thorns. Hedgehogs are mostly kept as pets in western countries. This mysterious animal appears in countless fairy tales and stories. It has a key role in a number of myths.

Hedgehog Tattoo Symbolisation

In Central Asia and some countries of Iran, hedgehogs are associated with abundant harvests. In these countries, the hedgehog is considered an animal closely associated with the energy of the sun.

Christianity gives the hedgehog a dual meaning․ On the one hand, it is considered an evil bandit that steals souls, on the other hand, the hedgehog is seen as a fighter against satanic forces.

The hedgehog is a symbol of victory over evil, thanks to its ability to fight the venom of the snake.

The little hedgehog inspires many artists with its unusual and perfect appearance. It is also interesting as a tattoo design and immediately wins the sympathy of the viewer. The hedgehog tattoo symbolises agility, intelligence, protection, vitality and fertility.

It can be combined with images of nature or fruits.
