Mermaid or octopus??

I don't know which to get next, a mermaid or an octopus! I have ideas in my head but I haven't been able to find pics of exactly what I want. I've seen hints of ideas, but nothing really great. If anyone digs up some cool pictures, please let me know! I kind of like the  Bettie Pageish mermaid pic, but I don't want alot of boobage :-/. Here are a few I've found:

  1. Ok Lorikins, me too!! Take the ass and tits down a bit (although I know that's a prerequisite for pinups), and it's looking good! I was thinking mermaid next, too ;-).

  2. lol :)

  3. Why mermaid, Kiva? Octopus, I'll understand, although I think the best pics are actually your own work. Go through your website and pick the one you love? I like Betty Page but I think an octopus is probably something you are not likely to regret... I could be wrong of course.

  4. I like the mermaid in the picture above. It looks beautiful like you ((-:

  5. Now that's an idea! If you make a mermaid in your likeness, then I say 100% go with the mermaid :):)!

  6. I like octopi, but I'm voting for the mermaid, too! You could have the artist add a seashell bra like you always see on mermaids to help with the boobage problem. I think keeping her curvy Betty Page look makes her more interesting than a typical mermaid. Where are you going to get this one?

  7. I like both. The only thing with the mermaid is, it seems like the tail is coming out of her butt.;-) I would like to see a bit more of the "leg" part. I do like the pink octopus with the anchor too. Hard to decide. BTW, like the last tat that you got too. Very pretty.

  8. OHHH- I'm going against the crowd here and saying octopus! I love that last picture with his tentacles wrapped around the bones!

  9. Lori, GO GIRL!!!! Let me know what you get. I'm excited!!

    Aww Karin!! If I got one in my likeness, if anything, it would be the octopus. Just slap a brown wig on it, lol!!!!

    Susan, I will most likely get both eventually, but I don't know which one to get first! Ok, I'll go through my website. Maybe an octopus on a board with crushed ice? BWAAA!!!! I'm just kidding ;-).

    Grace, I hear you regarding the voluptuousness. It would look a bit odd to have an emaciated mermaid :-/. I do like that she is at an angle where her melons aren't on full display. It's more tasteful, dare I say??

    Casey, I would also like to see more of the body of the tail, yes!! Adjustments will have to be made! Thank you- I really like my daddy one too!!

    Kim, I have to admit, the bones (and the skull!) add a special touch, don't they?? That one is a contender for sure!

  10. Could you do both in one? Have your octopus with a couple of the tentacles curved in such a way as to form a chair ... and the mermaid sitting on them. After all, they both live in the same place.

  11. Tom, you clever bugger you!! I was kind of thinking of somehow combining the two, and that's a really cool idea! Now I just have to decide where this next one is going to go.

  12. How about a lady top half with octopus bottom half? A merctopus?

  13. Merctopus ... I LOVE that!! It would suit Kiva perfectly!

    Kiva, I'm not just another pretty face ya know!!

  14. HAHA!!!! You know Glenda, I think Tom is right- you nailed it!! A merctopus...or an octomaid!! That is HILARIOUS!! Thank you Glenda and Tom! I think that is the winning combo right there.

    Tom, I already know that ;-).You're the whole package, baby!!

  15. Then why won't you marry me???

    Besides the fact I already have a wonderful wife!!!

  16. HAHA!!!! Well, there's always Utah, Tom ;-).

  17. I vote for octopus!

    My daughter (the budding artist) in on an under the sea phase and it busy painting octopus and squid.

    In fact, I just bought her an octopus necklace on etsy.

    I'll have to make sure she doesn't see this blog. lol ;)

  18. Unless you are secretly a pirate or commercial fisherman, you should go with the more glamorous mermaid, but here's a rule to live by for tats as well as real life: chest, not breast ;-)

  19. Dale, I have an octopus necklace from etsy too!! Love it!! I would love to see your daughters paintings! Do you know what I am pining for? A monster sized octopus ring!! I have a big, chunky glass one with suckers, but I want the whole octopus in sterling silver!!

    Susan, lol!!! Yup, I am still conflicted! A friend of mine suggested I get an octopus on the back of my neck????

  20. Oh, the neck sounds like it would hurt! (says the squeemish chicken).

    Great, now daughter wants an octopus on her back, I had to show her the pictures on your blog. :)

    She's on deviant art as graciestar, I don't know what she's got up on there now. I want to make her an etsy shop. :)

    I bet you could find someone to make you that ring on etsy! ;)

  21. From what I remember of you (1990) I think the mermaid would be better a free spirt that noone tames
