Although hairless cats have been documented throughout history, there was no specific breed of feline without a coat; hairless cats were rather a rare genetic fault. However during the 1960s after some intense selective breeding the sphynx cat as we know it was born, or rather created. Famed for their lack of fur coat the sphynx cat is not truly hairless the skin actually has a very light layer of fur, though it is almost unnoticeable. Likewise a sphynx may either have broken whiskers or no whiskers at all. The skin is also prone to be the color their fur would have been often giving a sphynx an odd patterned look!!
With the lack of fur a sphynx loses heat a lot quicker than other cat species and as a result its skin is warm to the touch! Sphynxes are equally known for their energetic temperament, intelligence, curiosity and affection for their owners. It is perhaps for such reasons that hairless cat tattoos are a common cat tattoo. Sphynx tattoos are certainly a unique tattoo and look like no other feline ink out there, so if oddly charming tattoos are something you enjoy then you'll love these 30 sphynx cat tattoos!!
