Science Tattoos

Science writer, Carl Zimmer has collected photos of hundreds of tattoos that people have had done to reflect their interest in various science disciplines including astronomy.

These photos are published in a book combining art and science:  'Science Ink:  Tattoos of "Science Obsessed' (2011)." 

Over 250 science tattoos photos are on the Discover Magazine website under the title 'Science Tattoo Emporium'.
