Anonymous asked: i saw a ask the other day and you said that people have gotten tattoos from your tat squad zine, are you okay with people doing that because im considering getting one. and you also mentioned you were making a tat squad 2 are you going to post it anytime soon?
fuck okay with it I actually encourage it! go for it! and yes, tat squad 2 is all sketched out I just kinda need to figure out how to present it because I came up with too many designs and don’t want to cut any of them but I also want to charge something semi inexpensive for it and with the amount of effort/paper/ink it would take at it’s current length I would need to charge a little bit of money. #ambitiousdiysilkscreenerproblems #notactualproblems #honestlyexpectsomethingaroundjanuaryorearlyfebruary

More cetaceous treasures from Gemeinnüzzige Naturgeschichte des Thierreichs; see the last post for more.
First up is “Monodon Narhval" — a Narwhal — which is… colored correctly! It’s also a huge tadpole-like creature with what appears to be a lateral line, spiracle above its eyes, and one mysterious ventral fin.
Next is “Balaena roſtrata" — a Northern Bottlenose Whale. I guess the shape of the beak is roughly correct. For some reason the dorsal fin appears to be backwards and a few streaks of white have been applied at random. And what’s going on with that fully-body cellulite?
Finally is “Delphinus Orca"… apparently an Orca. The shape looks suspiciously similar to a Rondelet illustration from two centuries before, although the coloration looks a bit modern-ish. There also appears to be an anal fin and second dorsal fin.
