Octopus Tattoo Designs

So I've had a few requests for this over the year, and I'm happy to say I've started designing tattoos! 

While I'm not a tattoo artist, I have more than a few of my own and I respect the tattooing tradition immensely. I don't think there's anything more flattering than having someone ask you to create art that will be on their body forever. 

My two latest pieces were amazing to create. I admire both of the people who asked me to do this and I can't wait to see their final art! 

Deanna wanted a tattoo of a blue-ringed octopus, similar to a piece that you can see on my portfolio page! The proportions needed to be a bit different to fit on her upper arm so I got started designing her piece.

Natalia originally went to another tattoo artist who felt that they couldn't do the tattoo idea justice. She wanted an octopus knitting on the waves, fighting with the water. Luckily, she knows me! As both an avid knitter and lover of octopuses, I was so excited to take a crack at this concept. We are both delighted with the results and can't wait to see the final piece on her!

I love tattoos, and getting to design two this year has been incredible. I hope I get more commissions in the future and these projects have me thinking about what I want next!
