It would creep me out bigtime but the Octopus does have some interesting associations:
“An Octopus has eight legs, which invokes the power of eight while propelling to the depths of the subconscious emotions. It is thus a powerful symbol of transformation. In Cretan art, the octopus represents the mystic centre of the universe and the unfolding of creation.” Signposts
“The shapeless, tentacled octopus, with its suckers and hideous maw, appears particularly horrendous to the human imagination as a denizon of the Underworld and a symbol all the manifold horrors of Hell. The octopus is a symbol of the Great Mother in her terrible, devouring aspect.”

Hell, gaping Maws, devouring Mothers, Ancient Crete, mystic transformations – they would certainly provide a strong conversation point, if needed.
