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!

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!
