All done and completely healed except for a small pimple up in the mountains.  My client had a simple idea and sometimes less is more.  His only request was that I draw something that looks and feels like Alaska.  unfortunately I’ve never been, but I tried to imagine a place that I’d like to live.  If I had a few more lives to live I would absolutely spend one of them living in a place like this.  All alone in the wild.

Just after the third and final session was finished.
The tattoo is based on the following bit from the book Serpent Mage (Vol. 4 of The Death Gate Cycle):

The dragon struck, pinioned the snake’s body. Claws sank deep into the scaled flesh.
The serpent writhed and twisted in fury. Its head coiled around, it snapped at the dragon, but the dragon was careful to keep just out of reach of the venomous jaws. […] The dragon, great wings straining, lifted the king snake from the ground, soared into the air. The serpent dangled from its claws. 
The king snake fought, lashing with its tail, striking out again and again with its head.

An Ancient Fascination

Octopuses and their kin, sea creatures known collectively as cephalopods, have grabbed hold of our collective imagination for thousands of years.

We share this fascination as manifested in art, literature and contemporary culture in “Tentacles: The Astounding Lives of Octopuses, Squid and Cuttlefishes.” Highlights include:

  • A steampunk-style sculpture made from raised copper and brass with glass in the Japanese technique called “Tankin.”
  • Ancient Minoan pottery replicas painted with cephalopod designs.
  • An illustration from Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.
  • A drawing of octopuses attacking a fleet of ships, depicted as fact by a French naturalist in 1803.
  • A highly detailed drawing of cephalopods by famed naturalist Ernst Haeckel.
  • Glass models of squid and octopuses by father-son team of Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka.
  • A replica of the famous abstract work, The Birth of the Cephalopods, by Mark Rothko.
  • A dramatic depiction of a sea of ammonites 73 million years ago.
  • A replica of the intriguing yet slightly disturbing image of Contessa with Squid by Omar Rayyan.
  • Cephalopod tattoo art.

We also commissioned San Francisco Bay Area artist Nemo Gould to create three kinetic sculptures for “Tentacles” using found objects. Gould has transformed a jumble of junk into delightful dioramas that carry conservation messages delivered through a sense of wonderment.

Tentacles" opens April 12.
