It was Anna's and Tom's first date. When he saw her wrist, he thought "What an unusual major for a girl!"

Major - as in college? Would this be ordinarily considered a field of study?

Anna - H? A? F? In college? Tom - H? A? M? In college?

Did Tom see something on her wrist? Tan lines? A watch? Jewelry? A bracelet?

Relevant which wrist he saw? If so, left? Right?

Was she wearing something? Did what Tom saw indicate her major? Someone else's? Correctly? Is this major unusual for a girl?

Was it Anna's wrist? Was it Tom who saw it? Did he see it during the date? Is it relevant that they were on a date? Is what she was wearing relevant? Are their ages relevant - if so, LTPF list of integers?

Was the major in the humanities? Engineering? Military science? Computers? Hard sciences?

Are location or time period relevant?

Wild guess, that was just a wild guess...

Was the tattoo of some sort of code? Her birthday? The name of the college?

Wow, this was quick! Congrats to Balin for the solve. Nevertheless, here's a

Anna had a tattoo of her birthday in binary on her wrist. When Tom saw it on their first date, he thought she was a computer science major.

Wow, I can't believe I got that! That was three wild guesses in a row.

My binary birthday is 1100/1010, which is not any holiday whatsoever.

Nice puzzle, Doriana!
