Origin of Species.jpg“Attached is a photo of a tattoo I got immediately after turning in the final paperwork a little over two weeks ago for the completion of my Ph.D. in biological anthropology. It’s the first evolutionary tree that Darwin sketched in his 1837 Notebook B on the transmutation of species.” –Julienne

We’re up to 64 tattoos in the flickr set, which has been seen by over 96,000 people since I set it up last month (which doesn’t count the 130,000+ pageviews of the original post). I think I’ll just post my favorite of the week each Friday until people stop sending them to me.

    Nice! It leaves out my favourite part of that diagram, though, which was the annotation, “I think.” 😉

    I actually have that tattooed on my shoulder – funny, I didn’t think that anyone else had it. Since I can’t post photos, here’s a link to where a photo of it *is* posted (keep it mind, it’s pretty fresh in this photo, and it looks better now that it’s completely healed):

    Hmm… by blog precedent shouldn’t this be taturday ?
