Giant Pacific Octopus Tattoo Design by HeatherHitchman Giant Pacific Octopus Tattoo Design by HeatherHitchman
Another Tattoo design commission from Etsy :-)
I have NEVER drawn an entire octopus before, so the task was very exciting and a little intimidating at first. But I am very pleased with the final result and so is the client. This is going to be a rather large tattoo so I cant wait to show you guys the ink once the client sends photos.

Enjoy!

It always seems so intimidating to get all the tentacles the correct size and length without feeling stilted. This has a nice fluidy feel.
