Showcasing hundreds of eye-catching tattoos that pay tribute to various scientific disciplines, from evolutionary biology to astrophysics—Zimmer reveals the stories of individuals who express their science passions through body art. Each tattoo provides a leaping-off point for Zimmer to reflect on the science in question, from the importance of Darwin's finches or the significance of the uranium atom inked into the chest of a young radiologist.
