Science Tattoos

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I have a tattoo fetish (ambigrams = awesome) as well as a strong desire never to go through the pain of getting one.

But they’re still fun to look at.

And Carl Zimmer has a bundle of awesome science-related tattoos.

Like Darwin Kong:

Chris writes, “I teach science at a public school in eastern Mass. This tattoo was taken from a New Yorker cartoon that my wife and I both have hanging in our classroom’s (she teaches science, too). Most people think it’s her Dad…there is a resemblance. When told it’s Charles Darwin, too many people reply, “Who’s Charles Darwin?”. It’s kind of sad. I call this Darwin Kong, the establishment trying to destroy Darwin for the same reason it destroyed Kong, it just didn’t understand him.”

Plenty more where that came from.

    I like his analogy. That said, I can’t imagine getting a tattoo like that; it’s a bit over the top. Actually, I wouldn’t get any sort of body image that you can’t easily remove later.

    Are the smudges part of the tattoo?

    (Hey, I had a couch with that same floral pattern.)

    C’mon, tattoos don’t actually hurt; it’s more an annoying little itch than actual pain!! 😉
