Tarpons grow to about 4–8 ft long and weigh 60–280 lbs. They have dorsal and anal soft rays and have bluish or greenish backs. Tarpons possess shiny, silvery scales that cover most of their bodies, excluding the head. They have large eyes with adipose eyelids and broad mouths with prominent lower jaws that jut out farther than the rest of the face. Tarpons are considered one of the great saltwater game fishes.
Hi and welcome to J & D Artistic Metal Designs
My name is Joe Brister I am a metal artist all the pieces I offer on my site are made by me from start to finish. Each piece is made as order is placed.
My lead times are 1 to 2 weeks to get made and shipped as I offer several options for most pieces. If you need to see about getting something done sooner please contact me and I can let you know if it can be done to meet your needs.
All my pieces are hand shaped and airbrushed using translucent dyes that allow the polishing effects to reflect back through the color for a unique look. After I finish my air brushing I use a very durable clear powder coat finish that gets backed on in my powder coat oven for a very durable finish.
My main passion is my fish if you would like to have something made you do not see on my site please contact me and I am sure I can make it for you.
Thank you and I hope you enjoy my site.

The quality of the work is fantastic. It looked just like the picture which was displayed on Etsy. Kudos to the artist.

We received our tarpon pretty quickly. We like the shape and size we ordered but did not like the colors that were airbrushed on. Very bright and not realistic looking. A little disappointed because my husband discussed it with him before the order.
