Carl Zimmer's Science Tattoo Emporium Answered
Underneath their sober lab coats and flannel shirts, scientists hide images of their scientific passions.
Writer Carl Zimmer wondered aloud whether many scientists have tattoos that reflect their science or other geeky interests, and the response was an emphatic yes. He's posting the photos and stories of scientific ink up at the Science Tattoo Emporium. Today's is a gorgeous backpiece of the tree of life, belonging to a grad student in zoology at the University of Melbourne.
Of course, now I'm curious -- do any of you makers, builders, tinkerers, and crafters have geeky tattoos? If not, what would your tattoo be?
Carl Zimmer writes a fascinating science blog called The Loom along with other science journalism.
