Lion and Bat

I have been fascinated with bats since I was a small child and now have a near 20 year long career as a wildlife biologist working on bat-related research and other bat conservation projects in southern California. My Mother always wanted me to get a bat tattoo but I never got around to it while she was alive. On the day she passed away my siblings and I went and got Lion tattoos to symbolize her passing (she was a Leo). Later, on the anniversary of her passing I decided to finally get that bat tattoo she always wanted and I went big so she could see it from heaven.
