"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. (See Darwin's original sketch here)
