Design a Tattoo for ScienceOnline2012

I hope your creative juices are up to this task.

Carl Zimmer’s new book Science Ink has everyone talking about tattoos at ScienceOnline2012. But if you are not ready to get permanently inked, you can still participate in the fun. Carl’s going to have a bunch of temporary tattoos to give away (Thank you Carl and publisher, Sterling) and we get to design them!

Submit your idea for a science-y tattoo! Send your design as an email attachment to Karyn . We’ll post a gallery and set up a system to vote.

If you have questions, just email me (see link above for “Karyn”)
