Lines for my octopus tattoo, done by the amazing Genny at the Wizard’s Den in Petawawa, Ont. This is my second tattoo, I loved and hated the experience so much. The hurt was worth it.
Octopus are so beautiful and strange and I’ve loved creatures of the sea so much.
I cannot wait to get the colour done and to see it finished. :)
Reasons why octopuses in general are really weird:
- some have three hearts
- and venomous saliva
- and a hidden parrot-like beak
- they can change the color and texture of their skin with incredible ease and speed (they are much better at it than chameleons)
- they have “intelligent arms” that don’t seem to need instructions from the brain to perform certain actions
(this is a giant pacific octopus.)

I love that aquarium maintainers have to wrap up the locks in octopus tanks with turf, because they can and will figure out how to unlock their tank <3
I love octopuses and their tentacles.
