Octopi, Tattoos, Oh My -- Cuttlefish

Everyone knows I heart octopi -- oh, you didn't? well, now you know -- and if I could make a decision/settle on an image/not worry about being allergic to the ink, I'd definitely invest in an octopus tattoo.

Is there any question why I love this animal? Water-based. Flowing tentacles. Misunderstood "monsters." Uses ink as its defense. Awesome plural form of word. Come on, come on.

Behold, a stunning cuttlefish tattoo. I drool. I drool. Not an octopus -- thanks, commenters -- but reminds me of one (all those sprawling pieces, oh my).

Well, sir, your tattoo is amazing. I have long loved octopi, and this is the first tattoo-interpretation that's seemed "right" or "perfect." Stunning work: It's truly a work of art!

I too am looking to have an octo tattoo and your's is by far the best I have seen. I love the wrap around - I am looking for it to wrap to my back. Any chance we can see more of it?
