Derek Nobbs Is My New Favorite Artist

After struggling for just the right tattoo design for awhile…I think I found a contender.  If I can I just convince to do something with Giant Isopods we may have a big WIN!

  1. Absolutely outstanding! Do it! My weedy seadragon tattoo has been asking for a friend… so I’m debating between a mimic octopus, dragon moray, or fiddler ray… though I did tell my wife that a hagfish on my posterior might be a contender. Or perhaps a blue bottle jelly… or a queen conch… or all of the above ;)

  2. Omigawsh! And he lives right here in the great Pacific Northwest! Thank you for passing this on; I’ve checked out some of his other art and it looks fabulous, specializing in “old time sailors” – type work. Passing this on to all my friends with Sea Shepherd, and others.
