  • "It was three years ago to the day that I wondered out loud whether scientists wore tattoos of their science. The result was a resounding yes, and that yes turned into the Science Tattoo Emporium. And today, I’m pleased to announce, the emporium is going to turn into a book. The book, tentatively entitled Science Ink, will be published next year by Sterling. The images will be accompanied by some of my own reflections on the tattoos, in which I will unpack the inside jokes and strange histories of the science behind the pictures."

    Got a science-y tattoo to share? Click over to The Loom for directions on sending it in. I'm thinking of running out to get one just to be in the book. I'd probably choose something from the field of psychology — perhaps a sigma squared.
