In 2010, I was stung by a round ray (Urobatis halleri) on my arm after I fell on top of it while snorkeling. It was so ridiculous that all of the nearby life guards came to see as I soaked the afflicted appendage in hot water. To commemorate the event and remind me to persist in my journey to become a marine biologist, I got this tattoo over the scar. Granted, I took liberty with the coloring--too much brown otherwise.

This has been on my bucket list for a long time. And wouldn't you know, Capri pants are back in style! I chose my ankle to place this fish with a penchant towards the Japanese arts. Most of my friends thought I'd adorn myself with a lingcod. This was as close as I dared.

As founder of the Fish Reef Project I got the tattoo as a way to show my unwavering life long dedication to creation of new reefs in California.The reefs will restore and enhance sections of our California ocean and seafloor. They will abound will all manner of marine life and return health to parts of the ocean that are currently less productive than they should be.

Noted Tattoo artist, Pat Fish did an excellent job showing a reef ball with kelp, and other life. The Shark is there as a metaphor showing that the Fish Reef Project is a net protector of ocean life, but its fierce teeth intimates that we will accomplish our mission of creating new reefs and nothing will impede our efforts.
