Tattooed Tarpon by Kelly Reark
Every piece that I do is a unique piece. The design process involves YOU! I create my one of a kind tattooed fish pieces using photo references from your trip of a lifetime. Many vacationers and residents of Boca Grande have these mounts created to capture images of their "fish on" experience as well as moments spent with family and friends. Iconic images of the island are very popular as well.
I begin by sketching and later transferring my sketches to the fish mount. I also paint freehand and finish up by sealing the piece with a satin clear coat. I can create one fluid scene or create a collage of favorite moments and images. The sepia style is very popular because it goes so well with so many types of home decor. In person, the sepia tones look like wood carving or scrimshaw art. Full color pieces are striking as well. More photo samples on my website.
Approximate length of the tarpon in these photos is 54 inches. This one was personalized for the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust. All fish mounts are made to order and can take up to 8 weeks for delivery. Contact me if you have a deadline and I will do my best to meet it. Many sizes and species are available! I have sea turtles and rays too. Create a custom order or send me a message to talk about your design.
