Photos from Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed via Popular Science

Carl Zimmer—the bona fide curator of science-based body art—recently released his book Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed, a mind-blowing collection of tattoos that pay homage to everything from Darwin’s finches to neural nets, and of course DNA.

Popular Science’s article Science Ink: A Taxonomy of Tattoos Inspired by Science features a jaw-dropping gallery of the book’s body art:

The science obsessed—or at least those enthusiastic enough to etch their favorite equations, diagrams, schematics, and formulas directly onto their dermises—show off their needlework in a coffee table-worthy collection of pics, arranged by Zimmer into categories centered on major scientific disciplines: math, chemistry, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, astronomy, and a dedicated chapter on DNA.

We can’t wait to get our hands on this book and explore the personal connections between science buffs and their inspired tattoos.
