Tattoo done at Forever Ink Tattoos in Grand Rapids, Michigan
Idea came from orcaartist's picture "Killer Whale - Orcinus Orca"
Cost $120 after 50% coupon
Took about one and a half hours
And no, I didn't get Sea World tattooed on me. I just so happened to put my favorite word and favorite animal together in an idea two years before I visited Sea World and discovered they had the same thing.

I think this is a really cool piece! I'm getting an orca tattoo myself so I've been searching for similar tattoos for an idea of how it would look. This is one of the more accurate ones as far as orca anatomy goes, which is really cool!

Thanks! Honestly, the lower it was on my back, the less it hurt. You know those static shocks you get when you touch a doorknob or something? It felt like that just over and over again. The higher the tattoo went, especially the fin really hurt as if I knife was going over my back. I just closed my eyes and waited for it to be over. It's worth it though, it hurts for however long the tattoo takes, is a little sore for a few hours after that, and then you don't really feel it anymore
