When it comes to cute Halloween tattoos, it’s hard to go wrong with a bat. If you’re into that whole spoopy (that’s “cute spooky”) vibe, these cute bat tattoos are where it’s at.
Because, let’s face it, while raven tattoos are cool, they’re rarely “cute.” You just sort of wait for them to start croaking Nevermore around midnight because it wants you to stop watching What We Do In the Shadows. Look, Clyde, we have to find out what happens with Laszlo.
But, bats? They can be adorable! They can curl up around pumpkins, hang upside down and show off their enormous ears, or just cause a worldwide “issue” that’s lasted for nearly a year. Not such a good job on that last one, guys.
But, despite that and the fact that they make bad pets, we still love the little flying mammals.
