Map Tatoos

As you all know, I love maps. However, my love for maps does have its limits. For example I do not love maps so much as to tattoo one permanently on my body. These cartophiles take their love for maps to the next level...

This man loves his home state of Florida so much, he doesn't mind being easy to pick out in a line up:

Finally, who needs a wardrobe, when you have your own map to Narnia?

UPDATE 5/6: Anyedge says, "I have a robinson projection of the whole globe on my left deltoid"

Thanks for the pic. Any other Carto-Tattoo-philes with photos to share?

Also, I removed the Sao Paulo "tattoo"... see comments.

Hate to be a bummer, but that map of Sao Paolo on the guy's back is not real. I clicked over to Hand Drawn Map Association and it says "Fernanda created this image by printing a map of Sao Paulo onto a photo of someone's back."

You can also tell if you look at the top of the map near his head and shoulders.

Thanks! I should have caught that.

The post was getting over-long anyway... so out you go, Sao Paulo!
