Octopus Tattoos Bangkok

Octopus Tattoo Bangkok

Octopus are magical creatures from the depths of the sea, so it’s no wonder that they are a popular choice for tattoo enthusiasts when choosing a piece with a powerful history to add to your collection.

 

History and Octopus Folklore

Octopus comes from the Greek work Oktopus, which means “eight foot”

These lunar creatures are heavily influenced by the tides and the waxing and waning of the moon

For centuries, octopuses have been used in amulets that adorned seafaring people as they traveled the great expanse of the world’s oceans

Octopuses are supernatural beings that have profound meaning in many cultures

Japanese folklore told of an octopus that could take human form and seduce numerous women at one time with their magical abilities

Norse sagas spoke of a legendary beast called the Kraken which was believed to dwell in the dark depths off the coasts of Norway and Greenland

It is only fitting that they would be a great choice when considering a meaningful tattoo that you won’t regret later

 

What is the Meaning Behind an Octopus Tattoo?

Octopuses are a symbol of intelligence and adaptability

They are other worldly creatures that symbolize complexity and mysteriousness

These otherworldly creatures have the ability to detach an arm and regenerate it later

Just like the octopus, we can also detach ourselves from the things that weigh us down in life

It is believed that an octopus tattoo represents:

  • Strength
  • Growth
  • Resiliency
  • Wisdom

The octopus can blend into its surroundings if it feels threatened or attacked

Having this attribute creates endless possibilities when choosing to incorporate an octopus into your tattoo design

The Blue Ringed Octopus is an excellent choice if you are looking for a vibrant piece that pops

If you’re looking for the perfect piece to finish off your nautical themed sleeve, then you can’t go wrong with the mythical and magnificent Kraken

 

Size and Placement of an Octopus Tattoo

When choosing the design that best suits you, there are a few things that you need to consider

The most important is placement on the body, as this will determine the kind of design that is possible based on size and proportion for the selected area

For example, if you are looking to go with a realistic design it is recommended that you choose a larger surface area on the body

Realistic tattoos are generally very detailed, and lots of details require large real estate if you don’t want to have to simplify your chosen design

Another thing to keep in mind if you are going for a realistic tattoo design, this kind of tattoo is based on an actual photograph

The photograph must be of the highest quality because the design can only be as good as the photo that is given as a reference

There are many different options as far as style and design goes

Some of the most popular are realistic style, watercolor, and Polynesian

There are a few things to consider if you are trying to decide between a colorful piece that pops and timeless black and grey

Black and grey generally holds up better over time and will require less maintenance and care in the long run

Going with a color tattoo means that you will need to think about what colors will work for you and how they will look long term

Exposure to the sun and elements with color tattoos means that eventually over time the color is bound to fade to some degree no matter how much sunscreen you apply

An octopus tattoo can be a beautiful addition no matter the style or placement

This design can work well on any part of the body

 

Octopus Tattoo Cover Up

Here are some helpful pointers if you are considering getting an octopus tattoo to cover up an existing tattoo you are no longer fond of

With any tattoo cover up, you are limited in the possibilities of the design verses tattooing on clean skin

The cover up must be quite a bit larger than the existing tattoo

The cover up must also be pretty dark and saturated with color depending on how old or faded the current tattoo is to ensure it is no longer visible under the new design

It’s always best to consult with a cover up specialist who can properly advised you on the best possible options for your cover
