I drew this up with the intent of getting it inked onto my body. Any constructive critism or feedback on it would be good. I figure if I'm going to get it put on my body for goods, it needs to be as good as I can make it.

Hmmm, I should really do more digital drawing. I graduated from a visual arts school but I don't make visual art. What's wrong with me?

I'm wondering how that yellow would look on skin, hmm how about a skin-tone color as background, to emulate the effect? Is your name going to be on the actual tattoo? :P I like the inky, blotchy parts, the octopus seems a bit simple in comparison, but form is funky and fluent. Are those... twirly hairs on its head? Btw, any meaning behind the motive? Nice work!

-cd-

I'm just trying to emulate the artist and style of my first tattoo. I have a surreal jelly fish inked on my back but Linn Olofsdottor didn't have any other work in the same vein (aquatic sea creatures) so I drew this up. I also really just wanted to design my own tattoo this time around.

The yellow dots will NOT turn up on skin. Good catch. My other tattoo has a similar yellow circle inked in it and the only reason why I can see it is because I know it's there :p

My artist name will be removed in the ink. I'm trusting that the tattoo artist will take a few creative liberties as well. If not I'll recommend it where ever they feel safe doing so. I gave the last tattoo artist that liberty and it payed off. If I like their portfolio pieces what could be the harm in giving them a little freedom?

Thanks for the review cyber devil!
