Octopus Monday: Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife

Elisa Lazo de Valdez has a stunning photo series in her Etsy shop called Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife. They’re probably ever so slightly not safe for work  so bear that in mind before you click!

The contrasting textures and sensual arrangement of the limbs (octopus and human) are fascinating. At first glance when leafing through thumbnail pics on Etsy I thought they were tattoos and, given I’ve been considering an octopus tattoo for a while, I took a closer look. So glad I did.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes those are real tentacles procured from her local Chinese supermarket.

You can see more of Elisa’s work over on her Etsy shop Visioluxus or via her Flickr.
