The last time we checked in with the Christmas Kraken, he was looking a little bare, no? Well, Marc sure as hell took care of that. This is stunning. Close-ups, after the jump.
(This work of art is by Marc at Swastika-Freakshop in Radolfzell, Germany.)

They do amazing work!
that is a verry nice one!!!
Ooh, I like the crosshatched shading. Everything that this studio turns out is gorgeous.
Ooo, when I first saw just the front of this the tentacles looked a little out of place, but now seeing the back it all makes sense, I adore the octopus 😀 awesome work.
They always do breathless pieces.
amazing as always.
Wow. Wow. Wow. I dig it.
It needed 5,5 Sessions to complete this. Some parts on my Ass are also finished yet (there are 8 tentacles…). Marc is 1 Month in Argentina. After that we will continue work.
And it is no GODDAMNED octopus. It’s H.P. Lovecrafts Cthulhu and he will swallow your fuckin’ soul^^
so cool! I loves it!
WOWWWW that is crazy cool!
WOW WOW WOW,
Man, I well want some work doing of Marc
Whooooa. My brain almost hurts trying to comprehend how awesome this is.
That cross-hatching and dot-work is incredible!
wow. that its awesome. except for the big red v or x going down on the crotch, dont like that part
Holy crap. The more I see from them, the more it pushes me to head over there for a big chunk of my work.
Holy holy holy awesome.
sweet, sweet, sweet
That’s it, I’m heading to Germany. Marc is AMAZING. Like he’s probably one of the greatest tattoo artists – evar ! this is just mind blowingg.

I think i want his skin. hahah!
It’s an amazing work, i have no words really!

Swastika Freakshop is the first thing that came to mind after the initital “what the…”. 🙂
This is an absolutely stunning piece of art. Love it.
JAYZUS KRUST that is BEAUTIFUL!! Golly, I can only hope whatever covers my stomach and back turns out as epic and wondrous as this work of art! <33 it
holy friggin’ crap.
wow, thats amazing.
Thats wicked sweet!!!
damn, i need to go to Radolfzell, Germany!
marc = hero !!!
my god, thats amazing.
hate to sound weird or anything but i’d love to see what he has in his pelvic area. and wondering if that was also done by the same people.
that puts my cthulhu tattoo to shame.
mad envy for this work of art, i LOVE it.
and i enjoy the pattern of the creature’s skin, fantastic.
I agree with the tag “Holy Shit This is Awesome!” This is very well among my favorite tattoos of all time.
Fucking jesus… that is some hot shit work there buddy.
First thing that came to mind was “Hail Cthulhu”!!!!!
Second was OMG that’s beautiful and I’m jealous 🙂
That’s a really great suit.
This is amazing. He should walk around shirtless all the time just so people can see this beautiful piece of art
i loveeee t
i would kill for this tattoo.
you have no idea how much i love it.
Swastika-Freakshop never ceases to amaze me.
The cross-hatching is fucking amazing.
me gusta mucho
not suprised by Marc,he is always doing such great artworks.
really nice, anyone know if the symbol on his right tricep has meaning? I feel like I’ve seen it somewhere.
^ hoho i was going to ask that too! anyone?
The Symbol in the Cross means : Chance, Transformation… i only know the german word : Veränderung
The Symbol on the right (smaller one) means at peace
The Symbol on the left (bigger one) means : it is how it is. For me : You can’t chance everything…
The Symbol on the back near cthulhu means : Beginning of everything , or in german : Ursprung.
holy wow that’s awesome.
What a surprise. More amazing work from Swastika Freakshop 😛
I really enjoy the symbolism and off course, the shading. The pointillism on his belly. At first I thought he had a dirty tummy! It’s great.
Amazing art and pretty shiny hair.
I love the fact that whenever a piece from Swastika-Freakshop comes up, I always recognize the style. It looks amazing.
God I freakin love this. I love how the cross hatching makes it look like an ink drawing. I could stare at this all day.
Ктулху!! великолепен)))) awesome!!!!)))))
Wow, this is amazing work.
Definitely one of my favourite tattoos that I’ve seen.
@Dr. Oc: Works great as Octopus, but sucks for Cthulhu… anyway, great work from Mark, as always.
🙂 i dont like the Cthulhu Arts from the Roleplaying game. I think they are to monsterous. Anyway if you like Lovecraft you have your own image of Cthulu as i do.
