Fuck Yeah, Math and Science Tattoos!

Triple alpha process for the stellar nucleosynthesis of carbon in red giant stars.
The most important reaction in the Universe for the existence of life, on my right bicep. The curve of my arm means you can’t see the emission of the gamma-ray photon after the second step - but it does illustrate the 3-dimensional nature of space. It also means you can’t quite see the full quote from Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock”, which is ”We Are Stardust…”.
Done by HB at Dr. Feelgoods, Poole, UK. I need a supernova next…..

My serotonin tattoo done by the amazing Cynthia Rudzis at Cirque du Rouge in Washington, DC.  (Sadly, the double-bonds in the ring don’t show up too well, even after getting it retouched. Guess my skin isn’t a fan of indole groups!) I got it because I love science (finishing my Ph.D this year - wahoo!) and because serotonin is one of the neurotransmitters that modulates mood - in other words it’s a “happy” tattoo :)

Quote from Carl Sagan’s book Pale Blue Dot. This particular quote is from Sagan’s observations of a photo taken by Voyager 1, showing earth as a tiny dot against the vastness of space. Combines my love of Astronomy/Science/Carl Sagan.
Done at Wicked Ink, Penrith, Australia. Artist - Joe Vegas.

I posted a photo on here a year ago of me after I had gotten the formula for the tesla (unit) tattooed on me. Since then I have decided to start a half sleeve dedicated to Nikola Tesla. This is unfinished and still is waiting on 2 other pieces and the background to bring it all together. Dedication the greatest physicist to ever exist!

On the top of my forearm so it’s only a straight line from my point of view.
It’s an algorithm for one of the end moves on the larger rubic cubes (5x5x5 and up), it’s the only algorithm I had a hard time remembering so now there is no risk of me failing while solving one!

My Saturn tattoo with Titan, Iapetus, and Enceladus in orbit. Saturn is not only my favorite planet but also holds great importance in astrology as a force that grounds us and makes us buckle down and go for the things we want rather than just expect them. Saturn is superimposed on the diagram of the directions to the sun that appears on the Voyager Golden Record - you know, in case I get lost :)

Thanks for checking out my arm! The two beauts are Dirac’s equation for a free particle (one of the first times that relativity was accounted for in quantum theory) and Schrödinger’s time dependent equation (which gives the description of a quantum system evolving with time). I searched high and low for more obscure ways of writing them (rather than what’s seen most often in the literature). This is my very first tattoo, and it marks the celebration of my recent decision to pursue a PhD in computational physics; I can’t back out now!
