“I just have to say I love that you’re compiling all these science tattoos. Ever since I got mine I was wondering what other science tats were out there.

So, in undergrad I did independent research on the aquatic ecology of tardigrades in the Great Smoky Mountains. I discovered three new species to science and this is tattoo is to represent how much I enjoyed that research. Also, I think tardigrades are one of the coolest organisms on earth – they’re practically indestructible! Thanks again for getting all of these together.”–Kristal
