Hi, I am new here, and was delighted to fine a place where everyone enjoys cephs as much as I do. I am considering getting an octopus tattoo. One of my ideas is to have sucker marks tattooed along with the octopus. Can anyone show me what sucker marks would look like on skin? I have seen the picture of the guy with sucker marks on his face but it is not a detailed enough photo. Any ideas?

Well, from personal experience octopus sucker marks just look like a double row of small hickeys... :roll:
Squid suckers would leave a lot more damage because of the chitinous rings (often with teeth); those are the kind that leave the scars on whales.
Cool idea! Let us know how it goes. :smile:

Would the sucker-ring imprints left on whales be "squid hickeys"?

Always thought Squidhickey would be a bang-up name for a punk band.

Thanks

Thanks for the input everybody, I'll let you know when I get the tattoo. I've changed my username to Cephadelic, look for the octopus drawings I uploaded to the gallery.
