    Classic!

    Nice work, I have a full sleeve with some underwater work. I have a clownfish swimming through an anemone, and an octopus sitting on top a treasure chest, a mermaid with a koifish tail. Manta ray as well swimming above all of it. I like the yellow tang, very unique!

    you can't just talk about a tattoo... pics!

    I've wanted a large octopus tattoo for quite some time now. However, I just don't know the details of it... like where, who, how and how am I going to pay for it ;D

    This is the only pic I currently have. My computer crashed and lost most my photos. The octopus and manta ray parts are above on my shoulder done by a different artist. I can see if I can snap a pic later and re post the top part.

    Thanks! It might be closer to $3,000 now that I think of it. This was done back in 04' so my memory is a little fuzzy esp on how much money I spent. I paid cash and sat for six hour sessions at a time, so I got a price break and being friends with the artist helps.

    So very true. I got a plan for a God of war meets 300 Tattoo.... I've been planning for awhile now. Its almost ready.

    Reef tattoo will be next and yours is very inspiring awesome work. Your tattoo artist should be the next ink master.
