    Ouch. Such a detailed phylogenetic tree is really the last thing I could recommend as a tattoo.

    Whatever! this tattoo is awesome. I think this picture was used in an ecology lecture at my university (big 10!)
    I would rather have this tattoo than a fairy or rose a la 1990’s. This is SCIENCE!
