One of the young women who works at one of our local cafés has an equation tattooed on the front of her neck. It’s hard to read, a bit complicated – she said it’s the equation for Einstein’s theory of relativity.
Personally, I’m not willing to go that far in order to communicate science (much to everyone’s relief, no doubt!), but plenty of others are. Take a look at these science-inspired tattoos collated by TechInsider.
Science writer Carl Zimmer even put together a book in 2011, called Science Ink, on scientists with tattoos that reflect their work.
