Although hedgehog tattoos are not very popular, hedgehogs occupy a place in the minds of people in the art world. We often see hedgehogs in cartoons, and their classic images have left a deep impression on many people. Hedgehogs give people positive and happy associations. Modern tattoo artists have modified the image of hedgehog and added many modern details to it, making it a popular tattoo theme.
In western culture, the image of hedgehog always appears around the Babylonian goddess Ishtar. It symbolizes love and motherhood. However, in Christian culture, Christians give this kind of peace loving animal a malicious meaning, so Christians do not actively explain the symbolic meaning of hedgehog. In some tribal cultures, hedgehogs are considered to be the totem of nature and are believed to have a close spiritual connection with the earth.
