The Connect-the-Dots Tattoo
Ever since I was little I joked about getting my birthmarks numbered--that I was one big connect-the-dots tattoo that made a "me". This tattoo is part of "The Stalking and Murdering of a Childhood Giraffe Project" (full explanation of the art project is HERE.) It's an extremely visible invisible tattoo and Dave C. Wallin who made it did an AMAZING job considering how small the numbers had to be. Pretty sure I'm not the first person in the universe to come up with this idea, but I've yet to see another connect-the-dots tattoo. Got my tattoo on August 25, 2007. The design was based on a really geometric giraffe drawing I found in 2003 (if anyone can find the name of the original artist I would be super appreciative!), but I modified it to have spots and be even more box-like. I love this tattoo so much...which makes it hard to walk down the street without starring at my own calf.
