27 Giant Squid Innovations

From Tentacle Tresses to Sea Creature Tattoos

— February 2, 2010 — Art & Design
After going through this gallery of Giant Squid innovations, I’ll bet you’ll drop everything you’re doing and bolt to the nearest Red Lobster.

Ah squid, a formidable creature of the ocean that goes really well with lime chili sauce. There’s really no better kick off to a meal than a plate of lightly dusted calamari as an appetizer.

Our tentacled friends have been getting some news press lately as a rather large squid was recently caught off the coast of California. In honor of these sumptuous sea creatures, I bring you these 27 Giant Squid innovations.
