Tattoos & Tentacles

9 Oct

Tattoos & Tentacles is an stunning new book / photographic prints from photographer Julian Murray and marks the end of a great art series – a bargain at $50 (it would also be rude not to mention that of course squid porn is to date the most viewed post on this entire blog).

The Octopus Chair

7 Mar

I feel confident in stating this is the best chair you would have ever seen, it is from Maximo Riera and the first in a series called ‘The Animal Chair’.

The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles, and even including insects. Each creation retains the animal’s natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.

 





Perverted but beautiful

29 Dec

Monica Cook paints BEAUTIFUL and very disturbing portraits of women featuring niche sexual imagery such as genki genki (it involves bugs & insects) & the sexualized eating of food. Many of them also reflect the squid porn feature, which is this blogs most highly viewed post ever. To be honest if these were photographs I think I would be a bit ewwwwwwww, but as amazing paintings I adore them…

Cephalopod Christmas Trees (2010 repost)

I love this Christmas tradition from My Byrd House – hand made tree ornaments are created for each of the grand and great grand children. At the moment that means 99 so she has to start in March. I just adore the Cephalopod Christmas tree.

If you fancy a marine themed Christmas tree (well somebody might) but can’t face Sponge Bob (understandable) then clearly this is the way forward. Anthropologie is one of the places that has super cute marine themed decorations such as these shown below.

That said cephalopods seem to be a very popular option for decoration Christmas trees all round:

I started off this post with the idea of posting a nib about octopus ‘wigs’ used to advertise hairdressers (see below). Whilst looking for a few more images to support this t, I came across so many cephalerotic images that they totally morphed this post into something else. That something being…

If you are looking for a new hair style, Joshua Hair salon has a great idea for you: octopus wigs. Simply purchase an octopus and place it on your head. They were clearly in thinking octopus / squid on heads is a great concept as only the final image is the advert for the hair salon. The results of the octopus wigs are unexpectedly fabulous as the beautiful tentacles hang down like hair tendrils. Want longer hair? Buy a bigger octopus. Want shorter hair? Buy a smaller octopus.
