Book ID help - sci-fi novel with facial tattoos
October 19, 2010 11:50 AM   Subscribe

It's driving me nuts. Something brought to mind a book, and now I can't for the life of me dredge the title from my brain. It's a sci-fi novel, set primarily on space stations. People have facial tattoos based off traditional folkloric attributes of animals. One of the main characters is a security researcher who is brought in to investigate a data hack or other computer attack against a station's computers. Is this ringing bells for anyone?
