Science Tattoo Friday: Has The Ink Run Dry???

By Carl Zimmer | October 26, 2007 4:34 pm

    Perhaps, Carl, those remaining have tatoos in places they do not care to reveal.

    Or, perhaps, those who have a passion for science don’t give a tinker’s damn about tatoos.

    Or, maybe we should say bye to the poor tired talisman of science tatoos.
