The giant squid is a true deep sea monster, so let your imagination run wild with these giant squid tattoos!

Giant squid dwell in the deepest and darkest parts of the ocean growing to an enormous size due to deep-sea gigantism. Growing to an incredible 13 m (43 ft) for females and 10 m (33 ft) for males the giant squid is second only to the 'Colossal Squid' in size which itself grows to a tremendous 14 m (46 ft)!! It's pretty clear then that when it comes to the giant squid they certainly fit the bill as a true deep sea monster! Found across the world in the deepest waters, the giant squid is still very much a mystery with only a few specimens being found and footage of them a rarity.

Giant squid tattoos are commonly inspired by the maritime legends of giant squids that attacked boats and took sailors to their doom. Another popular design features a giant squid embraced in a grappling match with a large whale. Though, whatever design you go with giant squid tattoos look brilliant! Striking, unrelenting and bold, these menacing giant squid tattoos will give you plenty of inspiration for your own ink version of a true monster of the deep!!
