Symbolism by IMagus3999 Symbolism by IMagus3999
In our Color Theory class we're discussing tattoos - in particular, color v.s. skin tone. Anyway I shot with this model a couple of Summers ago and she had the most amazing art work inked around her entire body.

It was a beautiful illustration of an octopus or Kracken < not sure if that's the correct spelling but you catch my drift ;) Really a wonderful tattoo and it fit her personality well - so I had to show you at least a glimpse of this.

Symbolism by ~IMagus3999 "Not only is this a beautiful, artistic and unique back piece. But the photograph of it also manages to be artistic. Both art forms compliment each other well here." ( Suggested by PorcelainPoet and Featured by Battledress )

I first saw this a few years ago but stupidly neglected to save it, so happy to have stumbled upon it again!

Any chance of this becoming a print?

Do you know why she got an Octopus? The tattoo is beautiful, but it reminds of the beautiful and weird Japanese Edo painting of the Dream of the Fisherman's Wife.... tentacle rape from 1814. You have now been exposed to my random knowledge!

Kraken (you have the spelling correct) is also the name of the latest of Cray supercomputers. Located at the University of Tennessee, the Kraken is the 8th fastest supercomputer currently in use.

speaking as a photographer, I am impressed with the subject matter

speaking as a merchant marine officer - "unleash the Kraken"

Hmm... Symbolism... I'm guessing this expresses a deep desire to get felt up. :D
