"Tattooed Tarpon" by Kelly Reark
Tattooed Green Sea Turtle Shell
Fiberglass replica of a real sea turtle shell, made with special licensing and permitting in conjunction with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, MOTE Marine Lab and/or Florida Aquarium.
Every piece that I do is a unique piece. The design process involves YOU! I create my one of a kind tattooed fish and turtle 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 fiberglass 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.
Approximate length of the turtle shell in these photos is 36 inches x 24 inches. This was a specialized and personalized piece. All mounts are made to order and take 8-12 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! Pricing varies based on mount size. Create a custom order or send me a message to talk about your design.
