by Carl Zimmer and Mary Roach
Mostly culled from science writer Carl Zimmer's popular blog, The Loom, this collection of images of tattoos worn by lovers of science is full of beauty, humor and enthusiastic love of geeking out in a permanent way. Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed features plenty of amazing images, which are paired with the compelling, personal stories behind the designs. More than 300 photos of tattoos in this book also provide a leaping off point for reflective essays on the science themes represented in these works of body art. Hardcover, 288 pages.
