Julie writes, "It's a map of Galapagos, which obviously resonates with me as a biologist.  I also spent a month working there on a volunteer project a couple of years ago, and fell in love with the place so hard I'm determined to go back!  San Cristobal is a bit off to the right, and wasn't really captured on this photo, unfortunately.  However, you will notice the two outlying islands, Darwin and Wolf, on the back of my neck!"

She also adds--"By the way,if you do publish this, could you make sure you credit Fatty's Custom Tattooz in DC somewhere?  He did a great job from a handful of maps and pictures and my vague descriptions of how I wanted the piece to look!"
