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).
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.

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.
