"Artist Wafaa Bilal will soon be getting a tattoo that contains 1 dot for every casualty associated with Operation Iraqi Freedom. The full-back tattoo will be applied during a 24 hour performance on March 8th in conjunction with a fundraiser aimed at collecting $1 per death towards scholarships for Americans and Iraqis who lost their parents in the war. Kyle McDonald designed the visualization for this remarkable tattoo, which contains more than 4,000 US soldiers in red ink, and more than 100,000 “invisible” civilians depicted in ultraviolet ink."
