Behold the start of my beautiful chest piece by Teresa Sharpe. Not finished yet! Going back in July to get it colored. It’s a fruit bat with lace wings, moon phases above his head and crystal clusters near my shoulders. I’m completely blown away with every part of it, she drew the wings on free hand with a sharpie. The lace and rippled cloth she came up with on the spot is completely flawless. All of it is. I just can’t get over it. I can’t wait to go back and get it colored! Thank you so much Teresa!!!
This is one of the most beautiful tattoos I’ve ever seen.

Fluffy bat is SERIOUS.
painted bat (Kerivoula picta) is a species ofvesper bat in the Vespertilionidae family.
It is found in Brunei, China, India, Indonesia,Malaysia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam. It is found in arid woodland.
The body and tail are the same length. The body length is 3 to 5.5 cm. The tail length is 3 to 5.5 cm as well. The wingspan is 18–30 cm in length.
Small groups of these animals are often found in the most unlikely roosts such as in the suspended nests of weaver finches and sunbirds or under the eaves of African huts. Doubtless the bright and broken coloration of these bats is a form of camouflage to protect them while they roost in vulnerable sites. Although nothing is known of their reproductive habits, Painted bats have nuclear family units -that is, a mother, a father, and young. Hunting flights last around 1-2 hours.
Besides the coloring it is otherwise a fairly normal microbat that uses sonar to catch insects at night.
They live in Southern and eastern India to southern China. They are rare and live in groups of only 2–6.
Colors for Kerivoula picta are bright orange or scarlet, with black wings and orange along the fingers. As in other forms of Kerivoula, K. picta possesses long, wooly, rather curly hair, a small, fragile form, large funnel-shaped ears and 38 teeth.
Bat, pre-Halloween colored for your convenience.
