Minoan Octopus

A very early challenge for a very inexperienced me. Jorgo, the wearer of this tattoo, is of Greek decent, a father, a kindhearted poet and a left-wing rebel. All in all, a rather good mix.
In my early days of tattooing, he offered me his skin for a squid-project and i took it on, overthinking the concept and making plans i could not bring to life. Originally, i the Greek swastika-design was to be a stencil transferred to the skin, but this proved impossible, so instead i ended up freehand drawing it. This was my first time doing such a thing, which is something i have later become known for doing, and something i definitely enjoy doing as well.
