Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed

With Carl Zimmer

Thursday, March 7 at 5:30 pm

Free admission

 

Carl Zimmer has reported on scientific advances for 20 years, but only recently did he discover that some of the scientists he writes about are covered in tattoos illustrating their specialty. That discovery led to a unique book, Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed (Sterling Publishers, 2011). In his talk, Zimmer will describe the funny and surprisingly beautiful world of science tattoos, spanning everything from quantum physics to neurons to galaxies.
