    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’m #10 in the slideshow! Fame for a limb! Should get a copy for my artist)

    I love how Zimmer’s book can be used as a lesson plan to teach science:
    http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/09/images-and-ink-identifying-significant-science-symbols/
    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.
