Ideally, I'm looking for public domain Meridian charts that are easy
to understand.  I'd like one of the face, and then some number for the
rest of the body -- front and back.

It can also be broken down by meridian. 

My goal is that if someone looks at the chart, they can see exactly
where the meridians corresponds to on their body.  The best one I've
found so far is here: (but this
doesn't have a lot of face detail and doesn't do the back).

If I can't find public domain Meridian Diagrams, then a good website
to refer to would be second best.

Hello curiosly-ga!

My husband is a physician with recent interest in acupuncture so it
was fun and interesting to look this up for you. As you probably are
aware by now, there are many meridian charts available for purchase on
the web, but it is difficult to find high quality charts that are
available for free. I was able to find a few nice sites that I think
will suit your needs.

The first is an interactive meridian chart. It divides the body into
three sections, and then includes meridians on the front and the back
of the body. The face is also included on the model. The lines are
very detailed and when the user hovers over a point, its name appears
with a brief description. This site also offers a feature where the
user can search by meridian, locator ID, name, or treatment indication
to locate appropriate points.

Searchable database:

The next site offers smaller pictures for each meridian. The specific
points are listed by their locator IDs. I don?t see any charts for the
back or face, however.

This next chart shows only ?cardinal? points, but depending on your
needs it may be adequate. There are limited facial points as well as
back points listed.

Here is a series of charts illustrating the various meridians. They
are all bitmap images and are a little grainy, but very complete
nonetheless. The full body charts label the points by locator ID, but
the specific meridian charts have only simple numbering.

I hope that this answers your question. If you have need of any
further clarification please let me know how I can help. Thank you
