Impressive, even if it isn't real.

Is it too obvious to say that I'd like to wrap my tentacles around her?

Probably best to skip the "sucker" references. :-)

Hmm a fine body of art...

I'm a little worried about the three sentance intro title with "Ride the Squid" in it.

I wonder what the Japanese would make of it all ;)

@ BF Skinner,

"Looks pretty real to me."

As a tat or body art?

In a photograph it can be impossible to tell if the work of art is above or below the skin.

Looking at the quantity and quality of the details I suspect it is not a tat simply due to how many hours of very fine painstaking work would be required for it to be a tat.

Further I'm a bit suspicious of the way it goes around and inbetween the ladies cheeks unless she stands in a given position it will significantly. change shape, also the focus of interest is in a position that would be out of place even with very minimal clothing.

That being said I would not bet more than a pint of good beer on it.
