"I was hoping you could put this tattoo up as your flicker page is missing any tattoo's of electrical engineering.

This tattoo is the schematic for the reference point of electricity. I just think of it as the source of electricity. Its really either the point at which you consider voltage to be 0, or in this pictures case, the physical connection to the earth (hence the lower calf). Electronics has been my passion for as long as I can remember, and I feel like this tattoo doesn't do it justice. So I plan on getting another one to incorporate my passion for electronics and my trans-humanism beliefs."
