Cephalopod Tattoo Owner's Survey


Staff member
May 30, 2000
Hello cephalopod tattoo owners!

I'd like to get your input for an article I am working on about cephalopod tattoos. Below is a list of 8 questions (how appropriate!). This will only take a moment of your time and your answers will be anonymous if you email them to me at email@tonmo.com. If you'd like to post them here, you can do that too... I started with an email solicitation to people who had contributed their tattoo photos to our image gallery, and received 10 responses, so it's a good start. At this point, I'll ask anyone who responds to this survey to email me a picture of their tattoo, and also let me know whether it's OK to add it to the gallery. Thanks in advance!
