The Science Tattoo Emporium
« on: May 04, 2010, 08:39:44 AM »
Couldn't think of a more suitable place to post this, so here it is: Discover Magazine's science tattoo emporium (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/loom/science-tattoo-emporium/), in which scientists show off ink that shows off their disciplines. Personal favorites include this benzene ourobouros & Schrödinger's tat.

Ahahahaha. I love it! The punnett square it beautiful, although I'm afraid that if I got one like that I would be accused of cheating on my exams.

My tattoo gets mistaken for DNA a lot (it's not) and I adore it, but I would love to get the four bases on the back of my shoulders: AT on one side (the drawn out structures) and GC on the other side.

Oooh this is going to eat so much of my time today! Thank you!

If I ever got a science tattoo I think that it would probably have something to do with thermodynamics, or the basic retroviral genome, or maybe that punnett square, it is cute, ooh or a catalogue of mutation types, or maybe the phylogenetic tree of a particular virus I like, maybe the uncertainty principle, or the crystal structure of the ribosome, or the three DNA helical structures...? I think I am going to run out of skin before I run out of science...

[...]but I would love to get the four bases on the back of my shoulders: AT on one side (the drawn out structures) and GC on the other side.

Then all you would need to complete the set would by ribose and deoxyribose in the middle (and maybe a few phosphates floating about) ^_^

Yes.

... I've thought about getting ethidium bromide in the middle of one of the loops on the current tattoo on my back, though. (A picture of which can be found on the wiki, by the by.)

This guy got the solar system all across his chest.

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/loom/science-tattoo-emporium/?nggpage=23&pid=146

It looks like he got Pluto too though, haha.  Poor guy.  He must have taken that whole dwarf planet thing rather hard.  Or maybe he took it in stride and got Eris somewhere on his back.
