I am 24 yrs old and have a large green turtle tattoo on my right hip. I chose this because I am a grad student in marine conservation and it is my dream to dive around the world and become a researcher, with turtles being a favourite of mine.


I got this tattoo on my ankle while studying abroad in Townsville, Australia.
I have always loved marine life and knew I wanted some sea creature.
I chose this design because it shows the gracefulness of reef fish.
I got it as a reminder to always enjoy life, not take things too
seriously and have fun. Seeing it always helps me clear my head when I'm stressed.

My tattoo is a celtic nautical star. It is a symbol that represents "finding ones own way".
It stems from the idea that sailors at sea would be guided by the north star in the sky.
The nautical stars were originally used by sailors to help guide their way as they sailed
through the night. They relied upon the stars to protect them and bring them home safely.

I got my tattoo because I'm an artist and this Octopus symbolizes diving deep within for ideas
and inspiration. "Ideas are like fish... If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow
water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you've got to go deeper. Down deep, the fish are more
powerful and more pure. They're huge and abstract. And they're very beautiful."
-David Lynch (From his book "Catching The Big Fish")
