Science Tattoos

I've had a fascination with tattoos for awhile; although I'd never get one, I get a kind of voyeuristic pleasure out of seeing other people's and hearing their stories. So I was happy to see a slideshow of science-themed tattoos on the Science Times today, from Carl Zimmer's new book, "Science Ink". These tattoos are also of an impressive design and quality, and many of their owners are (bad-ass) scientists themselves:
