Tattoos are beautiful. Sexy. Fun. Exciting. Profound. Wonderful and cool as hell. 

To mark our bodies is one of the things that makes us human. How much better to turn them into art. 

For Steve Malley, a tattoo is about more than just the art. It's about the experience, too. His drive to create high-quality art and happy memories is the driving force at the heart of The Jolly Octopus.

For very nearly thirty years, he has been making the world a more beautiful place, one tattoo at a time. His work reflects a painter's love of color, a cartoonist's flair for distinctive linework, and an illustrator's passion for telling a story with ink in skin. 

See him for all things bright and fun and colorful, especially flowers, geeky stuff, and pinup girls!
