This is two of the four base nucelotides of DNA (Cytosine, Guanine, Adenosine and Tyrosine) usually just known by their first letters C, G, A and T. Im a Geneticist hence a DNA tattoo.
In a DNA double strand C pairs with G and A pairs with T…my tattoo shows C pairing with G.. my name is Charlotte, my husband is Gary :)

DNA and one of my favorite quotes by Carl Sagan added to the stars on my leg. Work is done by Shawn Coalman from “Skin of a different color” tattoo shop in Aurora, IL. There is more work to be done with more Scientific awesomeness and I can not wait!

The words “force vive” are a tribute to my favorite 18th-century physicist Emilie du Châtelet. It’s her own handwriting, taken from her edits in the margins of Voltaire’s notebooks.
The heart squared (the 2 is also Emilie’s handwriting) is a tribute to playwright Lauren Gunderson. Her play about Emilie inspired me to continue pushing forward in my physics education at a time when I really (really!) wanted to give up.
"Because lives aren’t equations…they are variables inside them. The governing equations are universal,But a life lived fully can still change the universe.”
- Emilie La Marquise Du Chatelet Defends Her Life Tonight by Lauren Gunderson

Change over time. This tattoo uses mathematical symbols to describe what I study—change over time—as a historian of mathematics. As a bonus, it’s also a pretty good approximation of my life philosophy.

The first of many, a single strand DNA. As a genetic bio major, it reminds me to stay grounded and not get wrapped up in the politics. Done by Adam and Kreation Tattoo.

Schrödinger equation with an electron trapped in a well.  That’s the uncertainty principle on my foot too, but it’s hard to see.  I’ve got a bunch more all over me, but I just happened to have this picture handy.  twitter: @jasonthalken

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…..
