These flying mammals have fascinated humans for centuries, associating them with magic, horror culture and gothic art. Their activity is only visible at night, flying silently in the moonlight to hunt their meal. Very social, they gather in huge colonies, in dark places such as caves and when frightened, they burst in massive flight with piercing screams... A classic scene in a suspense or horror movie, isn't it? That's why so many people are scared of them. They can't help associating them with vampires. But in reality, bats are really peaceful and sweet animals. Their little mouse head is really cute, and their wings are so badass! Bat tattoos are reflecting these two aspects. Bat silhouettes are making great small tattoos, either gothic or poetic. But animal lovers also enjoy playing with their odd appearances for mystic, cartoonish or tender tattoos. If you think this small animal deserves more love, then you should show it with awesome bat tattoos. You can enjoy their mysterious look or go for the cuteness overload! Here is some inspiration if you are bats for bat tattoos!
