300 to go!

 

Strobist: Single Vivitar 285HV in an umbrella directly above the camera.

 

I realized that I've never taken a decent photo of my chest tattoo before, so here it is. I've copied the description from the previous (awful) photo:

   

Done by Erik Mannhardt of Lucky Lotus Studio in Rochester, NY.

 

No one managed to guess the meaning of it, so here it is:

 

The birds represent 1's. The spaces represent 0's.

 

The arrangement of birds on the wires (with the flying bird) is:

 

01001101 01001111

01010110 01000101

 

Which means MOVE in binary (note for nerds: actually it translates to four numbers which represent those letters in the two most common text encodings [ASCII and UTF-8]).

 

If the flying bird flies away, it changes to:

 

01001100 01001111

01010110 01000101

 

Which translates to LOVE.
