This map tattoo makes travel all the more exciting and interactive. Backpacker Bill Passman details his journeys in colorful detail all over his back.

Backpacking anywhere is an exhilarating experience. The absolute freedom of being able to do what you want while travelling light and staying moving can be an amazing time. The stories that one will certainly have are part of the excitement but what about a permanent reminder and an inventive story to tell?

This map tattoo covers the majority of backpacker Bill Passman's back and shows a well-scaled map that gets filled in whenever Passman goes to a new country. In the photo series you can see that he has been busy travelling as he got the tattoo completely empty and now the tattoo is almost completely full, I just wonder what he's going to do about filling in the ocean!
