Here is a pic of my amazing tattoo that has my grandpa’s Alaska fishing boat he fished on and I joined when I was 9 for some spring break fishing. The boat is named after my Grandma. The Squid however has nothing to do with Alaska but it’s my name. I’m a radio DJ in Portland, Oregon named Squid working for 94/7 fm. My tattoo guy Nick Jones from Indusrtrial Tattoo in Vancouver Washington drew up the idea and we were a go. We didn’t have any changes. I gave him a pic of the boat that my dad had taken in the 80’s and told him a Squid. I get asked if the Squid is attacking the boat and my answer usually is no, depends if Grandpa wished me happy birthday or not that year…
My tattoo guy Nick Jones is fantastic and since this tattoo I’ve finished the underside of my arm with an Anchor and last name banner. One of the best things about the tattoo is the people who come up behind me and just touch it like it’s going to bite..
I had a local news website do a little story on it also..
