I dig Krakens.
Theres a series of drawings of them I really love where they are attacking sailing ships.

The Krakens are as big as the ships...

I wish I knew how to link those drawings. I intend to get a tattoo of it one day.


toadphoney  said about 5 years ago:

Maybe settle for a tattoo of my squid rings picture. The yellow of the lemon would be quite striking.


LaxCharisma  said about 5 years ago:

Yeah..ummm...hmmmm...

Nah.

Oh man! I have this phobia of a kraken in a children's encyclopedia - I looked at it for the first time in years back in March. A friend - who is an artist- is designing my tattoo. Can't wait!


LaxCharisma  said about 5 years ago:

What a Kraken tattoo?

Are you getting a Kraken tattoo?


Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

FUCK YEAH! I cannot believe you are also considering getting one as well. This practically makes us brothers or something. I think tattoos should be personal and this could hardly be more personal- it is my 'story' if you will- tell you over a beer one day.

I've got to remember to say this next time I'm shagging:

Beware of the Kraken! It stirs!


Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

Bwahaha!!!


LaxCharisma  said about 5 years ago:

Yeah...you'll have to.

I don't have a story about my reasons really I just saw this picture of the Kraken and thought I'd love a tattoo of it. I first saw it in a book I had called ''Monsters'' when I was a kid...
I'll see if I can figure out how to link the image of it.

THERE IT IS!!!!!

Thanks Mrs.Charisma!


Goal attack  said about 5 years ago:

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea has a big Kraken/Giant Squid image associated with it. That's where I got my first look at a Kraken, and it stuck with me.


Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

Suite- look forward to telling the story one day.

LaxCharisma  said about 5 years ago:

Heres another one I like...


Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

I can't believe someone apart from me is into krakens- it is my shtick/in-joke thing amongst my friends (and because of my phobia I do not say I demons, but rather I have krakens). And since too much krakenry is never enough:


LaxCharisma  said about 5 years ago:

I'm sure there is some long forgotten reason why I am into them Tramdriver, I mean I'm pretty freaked out on the ocean in general. Fuck the unexplored recesses of outerspace THERE ARE THINGS DOWN THERE WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT!!!!

I think my fixation is mainly through art. I just love kraken pictures.

Heehee! I'm a silly boy sometimes!


Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

If there are ground krakens we're fucked!


cheezel  said about 5 years ago:

wats kracken?

fools?


BADALEX  said about 5 years ago:

Tramdriver- Ground Krakens? Don't be silly. Land Kraken now, they're another story altogether....


Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

BA - What's the difference? Anywayz I boughted this off egay for an udnerwater themed party (coincidentally the shower curtains at the party venue are also kraken).


BADALEX  said about 5 years ago:

Tramdriver- WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE? Oh...only the difference between your face and UTTER ANIHILATION.

Sheesh. Kids today.


Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

So land krakens are out and about in the daylight, while ground krakens are like the worms in 'Tremors'?


BADALEX  said about 5 years ago:

Ground kraken are a myth put out by the Illithids to lull you into a false sense of security until the Land Kraken come along and devour your shit.

CaptainFez  said about 5 years ago:

Land Kraken come along and devour your shit.

Coprophages? That'd solve the world's septic problems.


BADALEX  said about 5 years ago:

Metaphorically speaking CaptainFez. In this case, your shit includes your face, your house, your land and all your peoples.


Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

I reckon the Morlocks might ride krakens when they comet to eat us. Yep we're screwed.


BADALEX  said about 5 years ago:

That is.....a disctinct possibility. We must be prepared to fight them with land harpoons and tridents. Possibly cannons. Maybe even guns. Who knows? It's on for young and old when the morlocks come into town riding Land Krakens.

Hey JRB you are thinking of Cthulhu- totally different kettle of fish.


LaxCharisma  said about 5 years ago:

Tramdriver  said about 5 years ago:

Yeah it's rad. And if I'm lucky my kraken plushy will look like this:
