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…

“This is my friend, Ira Klotzko, he’s got a Doc. in Physics and a great sense of humor. I won’t share his original plan for the depiction of Uranus… One we can share is how he jokes that the tattoo is really accurate because, as is the case with his waistline, the universe is always expanding.”
