Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science ObsessedScience Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed by Carl Zimmer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book!  I have no interest in getting a tattoo, but I love the idea of getting an image of a trilobite, or an equation, or Darwin's finches permanently marked on one's skin.  Some of the tattoos are technically amazing: one person had a tattoo of Francisco Goya's etching, _The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters._  It looked amazing, and is one of the coolest tattoos I have ever seen.  Kudos to all involved!
