playtime with otto by BrianKesinger playtime with otto by BrianKesinger
One of the reasons i love doing tattoo designs is the stories behind them. This whimsical tattoo commission was done for a patron who wanted a drawing of Otto as her baby's favorite toy octopus that was sent over by his father who is serving in Afghanistan. I was honored to help realize this for them.

Have been looking for octopus tattoo ideas for awhile and this just jumped to the top of my list. My daughter loves it. I'd change the toys though to match hers.
