Science, Skin and Ink: The Best Science Tattoos

The ForeverGeek crew – and readers – have this thing about tattoos. I think we’ve covered pretty much everything from electronic tattoos to superhero tattoos to QR code tattoos. And I am pretty sure that there are so many more cool tattoos out there. (Now there’s an idea to check out for an updated collection.)

If you are a tattoo enthusiast, and you like your science as well, here is a book that must absolutely be part of your collection. It is not a new book – it has been around for a while now – but just in case you do not have it in your library yet, let me show you some of the photos in it.

The book is titled “Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed“. It does what it says on the tin. You don’t even have to go past the book’s cover to get an idea of what is in store for you. Here’s a sneak peek of the science tattoos that anyone would inspire anyone.

Neural Net Tattoo

Neural Net


The “owner” of this neural net tattoo is a Brazilian biologist who goes by the name of Gabriel Pato. Obviously, he has an affinity for the network that runs our thoughts. All I can say is that that is one heck of a tatt.

Phonograph Tattoo

Phonograph Tattoo


Which scientist got the patent for the “first phonograph” in 1878?1 That’s the patent, and musician Tyler Rollins wears it proudly.

Pioneer and Voyager

Pioneer and Voyager


Space enthusiasts will no doubt recognize the Pioneer probes and the Voyager spacecraft. I do believe there is no doubt that these tattoos deserve their spots in the book.

Rutherford Atoms

Rutherford Atoms


I might have called Rutherford other names when I was in school, probably due to no one’s fault but my own, but this tattoo is a sight to behold. Sure, Rutherford didn’t exactly get it right, but hey, not everyone can come up with a model of the atom.

Hard to beat these science tattoos, yes?
