Here's a slideshow of images from Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed, a new book collecting Carl Zimmer's favorite science-y tatts.
I still think the Euler's identity brand I photographed a few years back is the most committed science body-art I've seen.
Science, Skin and Ink
I’ve done a few sciencey tattoos in my day! (The Butterfly Curve, Pi, Soundwaves)
Anyone want a Sagan portrait? I’ll do it free if you come to Osaka! I’ll up the ante – Dawkins, Feynmann also welcome; what’s a plane ticket compared to that?
Is it me, or am I the only one who thinks that Golden Ratio spiral should have circled around that dude’s nipple?
I’ve been meaning to go to Japan for years! (tho alas, my credit, she ees cronched). Tempting though!
(I’m #10 in the slideshow! Fame for a limb! Should get a copy for my artist)
carl zimmer was on KQED’s forum program last week. it was a great hour of chat. listen to it here: http://www.kqed.org/a/forum/R201111041000
well, one of the two DNA molecules has the correct handedness …that’s something
I love how Zimmer’s book can be used as a lesson plan to teach science:
And getting a science tattoo is quite the filter to identify what matters the most to scientists themselves. Every tattoo in the book is bound to be eminently teachable.
