Lakeland Murals Red Crab Octapus Gaslight Tattoo

Gaslight Tattoo

This has to be Lakeland’s most colorful and whimsical mural with a crab, octopus, snail, flowers, and more. I LOVE it. Each side of the building has some kind of artwork on them, and the artist told me he’s still working to cover all four walls. I can’t wait to see what else he comes up with. Located at Gaslight Tattoo Company, it isn’t easy to see from South Florida Avenue, you’ve got to park and get out to fully enjoy this mural.
