Ok, so silly me linked to that article without actually reading it. You’re right! The tattoo on his right shoulder is actually a naked woman but they turned it into an octopus.
We don’t really know why they did this, but here are some octopus facts courtesy of Jessica Jones season two:
- No other creature has DNA like an octopus
- An octopus will lose and abandon an injured arm
- A 600-pound octopus can fit through a hole the size of a quarter
- They are solitary creatures
- They don’t care for their babies
No spoilers on the person from JJ S2 who was into octopuses (octopi?).
