Carl Zimmer: Science Tattoo Emporium (Cambrian Crab)
I got the tattoo shortly after SJ Gould’s death. I had settled on the design before he died so it’s not quite an homage but I did lift the picture from Wonderful Life. The original figure is by Marianne Collins, I believe. The Cambrian “C” was added later, my long-range plan was/is for a whole Paleozoic sleeve but I ran out of funding soon. I’d also like to get more ‘stem’ taxa one of these days.Click here to buy his book: Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed.
