Carl Zimmer: Science Tattoo Emporium (Mobius Strip)
I am a Rocket Scientist (friends named me that, more like Mechanical Engineer) and an Amatuer Astronomer. Got this tattoo on my inner right arm, since the science inside of me is screaming to come out. Going to get another related tattoo on my left inner arm next year. Not really going much further than that (as far as I know). "A twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop." This is the Mobius tattoo. A scientific calculation that can be used in Astrophysics to describe a closed system if gravity is strong enough to bend spacetime into a loop. Basically meaning that if you travel far enough, you will end up where you began without really knowing it. This is my first tattoo and it turned out great. This is on the inside of my right bicep. I will be adding another space or scientific tattoo to my other bicep next year. And yes... certain parts of the tattoo process hurt like a son of a gun...Click here to buy his book: Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed.
