I am Octo-Kraken, Hear me… wait, what sound do Octopuses make? #Tattoo #MentalHealth

When people talk about their spirit animals, they usually discuss mammals, and often time predators.  We associate ourselves with the animal characteristics we want to see in our best self.  We want to be the strong proud bear, we want to be the cunning sleek leopard, we want to be the wise ruthless owl.  Sometimes, people find out they’re a chipmunk or a dolphin or something else relatable and positive.  Rarely do you hear about someone being a skunk or a slug.

You see, there’s this reality of how the octopus experiences the world that is simply ALIEN.... read more
