Tattoo Artist Magazine

Carl Zimmer is a blogger and writer for both The New York Times and Discover Magazine, which also hosts his blog, The Loom Zimmer writes on a wide range of scientific topics. He is the author of 12 books, the most recent of which is Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed. When Zimmer asked on his blog how many scientists out there had tattoos, he was inundated with photo submissions and commentary, which he has collected into the neat book you can see and order below. It's our pleasure to share some of them... Dr. Anthony Friscia writes:
“The attached pic shows my tattoo of Miacis gracilis, and Eocene carnivoran from NE Utah I used in both my master thesis and doctoral dissertation. I started studying the carnivorans (members of the mammalian order Carnivora) there after going to the field with my undergrad advisor right out of college. I didn’t know what I was going to do with my life, and he said, “Come play in the dirt for a month and see if you like paleontology” and I did – like paleontology that is. He was an anthropologist so was interested in the early primates out there, but I liked the carnivores – cuz they ATE the primates…. My masters was on the alpha taxonomy of the new species we found while collecting, and my dissertation was about broader community change in carnivores throughout the Eocene. Both used specimens of this particular taxa, and even this particular picture.”
