About Steve Malley

Tattoos are beautiful. 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!

 

 

About Chloe DeBoo

Chloe DeBoo was an English major whose parents always hoped she'd be an accountant, a teacher, anything respectable.

Her plan was to graduate Hogwarts and become an Auror.

The owl still hasn't brought her acceptance letter, but that's okay: Chloe found a career she loves even more!

Her watercolor tattoos are simply beautiful, but her first love is awesome nerdy tattoos. Harry Potter remains a favorite, but if you come to her for Guardians of the Galaxy, she'll love you forever…
