    Gotham City fans must head to Etsy to make this important purchase. Its the Batman mask iPhone Decal. If you worship Batman as your hero and use an iPhone, then you must slap this decal on your handset to show the world how much you idolize your hero. The great thing about this Decal is that it fits different kinds of phones and is made with vinyl that is absolutely safe to handle.
