Splendid! Tattoos on people who love science

We stumbled across this fascinating project by science writer Carl Zimmer, who, in 2007, wondered on his blog if scientists were hiding tattoos of their science and got his answer from many of them — and yes they were. Science Ink basically is a pictorial trove of Zimmer’s favorite tattoos of science that span disciplines such as archaeology, astronomy, neuroscience and chemistry. They are sure beautiful.
