Deano Cook has made a name for himself blazing new trails in tattooing by creating a whole new category in tattoos. Specializing in underwater seascapes, Deano creates some of the most realistic underwater wildlife tattoos ever seen.
Deano Cook is an artist, an avid scuba diver, an underwater photographer, and a realist. Born landlocked in Atlanta GA, his frequent trips to Florida’s panhandle as a child began his early fascination with the sea.
His artistic talent has helped him slowly gain recognition, and experience invaluable opportunities. One of these amazing opportunities was assisting Wyland, America’s leading marine life artist, in painting two of Wyland’s famed Whaling Walls. This led to Wyland enlisting Deano to tattoo his entire left arm with Wyland’s own incredible artwork. Through these experiences Deano gained a new sense of accomplishment and a renewed passion for the sea.
Through his photography, Deano strives to capture the beauty he encounters in the underwater world. His photos then become reference for his paintings as he realistically recreates his subject matter on canvas or skin.
