This is really a book for anyone interested in science and/or tattoos... just incredible!

Back in 2007, the author Carl Zimmer (A planet of viruses; Brain Cuttings; Microcosm; Parasite Rex) began noticing that more and more scientists were sporting science tattoos. Fascinated, he reached out via his blog, ‘The Loom’ and began to receive a steady stream of tattoo images, along with compelling personal stories about the designs.

In this book, Zimmer has collected more than 300 of the thought provoking tattoos and expanding on the stories behind each one, he deftly explores the science behind the ink and reveals the passions and obsessions of science lovers around the world.


A really unusual book – even if you are just looking for a different tattoo for yourself!
