That tat's in inches.
A real geek would be tattooed in metric.

Wow-what elaborate tats! Fascinating. Thanks for posting, Helen.

Def H (if I may call you that?) That is an excellent link. [Smile]

Like most tattoo galleries, there are some really lame bits of scribbling, but there are also some really good pieces of work. I particularly like the microscope back-piece, and the "ball and stick" molecules are very effective too.

I like the Darwin fish. I also love seeing it on the back of cars. [Wink]

Well I've got four of them, and a few more planned as funds allow... and most of my geek friends have them too!
