For my love of sea turtles



I love spearfishing and diving. The artist's rendition of this hogfish is killer.

I'm working with tunicates and bryozoans at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, however, neither of those make a really attractive "wow" tattoo, so I went with another invert: an artist's interpretation of the giant pacific octopus, Octopus dofleini. The work was done over 7 hours by Matt at Gold Coast tattoo in Monterey.

This piece is a fossilized adult White Shark tooth done by Eye Spy in Petaluma, CA that I had done following a series eye-opening encounters out at the Farallones and most recently while surfing. I chose a fossil as a reminder of how young our knowledge of such ancient creatures remains, and how much more we still have discover.

I have this slight obsession with cephalopods, and after raising Sepia officinalis as an intern at New England Aquarium, I decided to get one tattooed on my calf. It was done on Guam by Mike of Lots of Art Studio. Who knows what will be next!

The ocean has always had a strong centering influence on my life in both personally and professionally. I got this tattoo as a present to myself on my 32th birthday to celebrate some significant life transitions. It was a fun process, like commissioning a peice of art.
I got this Koi tattoo when I was 29. "Oily" at Immortal in Havelock and I couldn’t be happier.
