A Career In The Sea [Tattoo]

Marianne writes, “This tattoo is actually from 4 different sittings at different stages of my scientific career. Specifically, the fish and turtle reflect my first snorkeling experience (the trip was a break from studying for my GRE’s), and then the manatee came along after my SCUBA certification following a trip back to Fl to do so (hence the dive flag flipper), and then I added the seals to reflect my work with marine mammal rehabilitation, and finally the ‘jellies’ (3 local species) which reflect my Master’s degree working with ctenophores. I am currently pursuing my PhD and will add another tattoo, not of my research specifically, but of a dusky dolphin with which I had the opportunity to swim with in New Zealand where I stayed after shipping out to Antarctica for research! Life is good.”
