Default New Tattoo

Just got a new tattoo

Design is based on the Pioneer Plaque. So super nerdy. But super tight. Symbol on wrist is hyperfine translation of hydrogen.

Then 8 planets of solar system, and the symbols bellow them are their measurements from the sun using the hydrogens spin-flip as a measurement.

Pretty cool. It's about time the nerd world and the tat world met. I take it you read a lot of xkcd too?

Btw - for the sake of all that's holy don't get the naked dude tattooed on yourself.

Nice tat! You will get questions about it all the time I guess! From distance people will wonder "wtf is this"?

It's either a semi-beefy arm or a chicken leg.

Never before but now I am a fan now that I looked it up. Its funny, but there is a whole genre of hot girls who find nerdiness attractive.

I've been damn near obsessed with Astronomy since I was 4 y/o. If I wasn't so terrible at math, I might have majored in it.

All I can say is...do something unique to your character. Something that you as an individual person can appreciate. Don't get a "trendy" tattoo like some tribal **** or a chinese symbol. This dude I know has a chinese letter on the side of his neck, I'm like "that's cool...I have never seem that before (sarcasm), what does that mean?" He's like "it means strength." It looks like a funny looking R C, so we call this dude RC Cola neck. I told him that there is a conspiracy where chinese letters don't mean what the tattoo artists think, and your RC Cola chinese symbol is a proverb for "I like ***** all over my face."
But hey if you're into hydrogen and the solar system, then that's cool in my book...

Neptune was a little bad, but its so tiny. It was the sun that was a problem. He was holding my wrist at a funny angle which popped that tendon up and kept coloring it and recoloring it. Became annoying after round 2-3.

Pluto was originally part of the whole sketch, I decided he was more of a protoplanet :-D

My plan is to accurately depict the kuiper belt somewhere else on my body :-P
