Dymaxion Map Tattoo

Today a world traveling professional photographer, adventurer, and international man of mystery completed this tattooed map of the continents. Now when his assignments take him to the far-flung corners of the globe he will always know where he is. We used the Dymaxion map of R. Buckminster Fuller for a unique perspective.

"The Dymaxion map or Fuller map is a projection of a world map onto the surface of an icosahedron, which can be unfolded and flattened to two dimensions. The flat map is heavily interrupted in order to preserve shapes and sizes. The map was created by Buckminster Fuller. The 1954 version published by Fuller, the Airocean World Map, used a modified but mostly regular icosahedron as the base for the projection, which is the version most commonly referred to today. This version depicts the Earth's continents as "one island," or nearly contiguous land masses."   -Wikipedia
