Jose Bautista Meets Bat Flip Tattoo Artist
Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista has stolen all the headlines with his recent home-run and following bat flip.
In a winner takes all game against the Texas Rangers Bautista swung a game winning hit and followed it up with a bat flip that was all kinds of badass.
An iconic baseball moment if ever there was one the now famous bat flip was seen by tattoo artist Scott Mason who instantly knew the image would make some serious fan ink! Luckily there's no shortage of fans looking to get crazy sports tattoos these days and after a little searching Mason had himself a client who was willing to have the bat flip tattooed on his thigh. The tattoo took almost 6 hours to complete but the result is awesome.
“I knew we had to get this picture tattooed on someone,”
With the hype of Bautista's bat flip still in full swing he took time to meet up with Mason and offer his appreciation for the ink by giving him a load of bats and hats. Calling Bautista a 'super nice guy' Mason didn't imagine the attention he would receive following the tattoo. “It's an honour to be a part of it. The energy is crazy...I'm really blessed to get to do what I get to do.”
