Tattoo by Ishmael Johnson (inkvomit.com) in Fort Collins, CO. Took 2 sessions of about 3 straight hours, 6 hours total.
This is based on a piece by an artist named Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins, entitled “Feeders” (http://www.imscared.com/files/feeders_800.jpg). As much as I wanted the original piece just like it was painted, I thought it best to forgo detail that would undoubtedly fade with a short amount of time and add my own twist. The jellyfish was originally supposed to be a smaller “feeder” on the shark’s fin, but instead it completed the wrap-around.
