Giant Squid

Completed: July 2018

Alyssa Longchamps, 26, is usually tattooing humans with her unique style of black and white art but for the last couple of weeks she has been spray painting a giant 14′ x 38′ squid on the outside wall of the Merivale Fish and Seafood Grill on Merivale Road. A friend of the owners, she was asked if she could come up with a design that would celebrate the seafood nature of the business and after some thought, she sketched up the squid. She took a week off from tattooing at her private studio, “The Static Lab”, and battled the brutal heat and thunderstorms and recently finished the project. “It was a lot of fun, I’m pretty excited about it. I don’t know if I’ll do more (because) it’s been pretty time consuming, but I definitely enjoyed it,” she said.
