  1. The rat in the cage, with a note is not a tattoo. That is a picture. I know tattoo’s when I see them and that isn’t one. Cute rattie though, mine do that all the time when they want out and they get out to play and rome the house like they love to do. Even our three dogs run away to their beds they are afraid of them its to funny. One day soon, my three rats will end up on my body as a forever lasting remerance of them. Some of these tatts I don’t like, they make rats look bad. Out door rats are just looking to survive. Looking for there next meal.
