11 Playful Platypus Tattoos


“Do you think God gets stoned? I think so… look at the platypus.” – Robin Williams

The platypus is one of only two monotremes in the world, both which are native to Australia. Echidnas and platypus are egg-laying mammals, but that’s the only characteristic that they share.

With a long duck-like bill, webbed feet and a beaver-like tail, the platypus spends its days swimming in rivers and creeks in search for food.

It’s rare to see a platypus in the wild, but getting a platypus tattoo means you can see one each and every single day of your life.
