Bat tattoo It is a mistake to believe that a bat brings failure and instills fear. Quite the contrary, from ancient times, shamans of various nations used these animals in their rituals to fence themselves from evil spirits. During these rituals, they treated people for various hardships and diseases. Therefore, a tattoo in the form of a bat encloses its owner from diseases and evil influences. In addition, this animal perfectly sees in the dark. Such a tattoo also means “vision of the truth”, intuition and objectivity.
