Maybe this isn't as outrageous as the Braille Tattoo (see below), but this women's tattoo is pretty wild. As it is, the tattoo doesn't look like much more than dots and numbers, but if all the points are connected (just like your favourite kid puzzle!) it creates an image of a giraffe.

Implications - Audiences who appreciate body modification have a desire to be inked with unique tattoos, allowing them to stand further apart from the crowd. Additionally, those who modify their bodies feel like they are expressing a moment or emotion that they have experienced. Through unique tattoos such as the connect the dots ink, body modifiers are displaying their feelings for everyone to see.
