24 Amazing Octopus Tattoos

Octopus are some of the smartest creatures in the oceans. They are also beautiful and so very different from humans that they are the stuff of old seafaring legends like the kraken. Because they have a defense mechanism of spraying ink, to confuse predators, they make a great idea for inking yourself. Octopus also happen to be very tasty to some people, but that’s another story. Regardless of your reasons for wanting octopus tattoo ideas, here are 24 really varied and beautiful octopus.

Full non-local color (an art work term meaning color that’s not natural to the object you’re painting) or just black ink both look great, but will depend on your individual skin tone to look really stunning. Personally, I prefer just simple black ink line work and maybe a bit of shading. Of course you could always go back and fill in with splashes of color like these watercolor tattoo styles.
