Tattoo art has infiltrated science camps as well! With scientists increasingly finding it to be a great way to showcase individual passions for science, tattoos are proving to be a big hit. This particular PhD student of molecular biology, for instance, sports a cool “Tree of Life” tattoo on his chest inked by Kevin Riley. The symbols of carbon, DNA, glucose, light and the Golden Rectangle encircling the Life-Tree vividly represent those basic elements that sustain and nourish our lives. Who said tattoos ain’t informative?
