From Funky Samurai:

These octopus suction cups work so well due to their composition of tightly packed 3D-muscles consisting of circular, radial and meridional muscles, all orientated differently. In order to support such a complex appendage, both inner and outer fibrous connective tissue layers support the suckers.
