I’ve posted periodic table tattoos before, but this one is a bit different. Rather than get the whole table, Frankie decided to get a few choice elements that spell out “Fear Not Life”. He writes:

I’m working towards a degree in Forensic Science with a Bio Option so science will pretty much be a major part in the rest of my life. I designed this Bio/Chem combo because it represented something I really believe in. When you read the element sequence (Iron, Argon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Thallium, Iodine, Iron), it says “Fear Not Life”. Thats what I think science is all about – not being afraid to dig deeper and find the beautiful complexity of life and maybe stir things up a bit…. It’s my personal reminder of why I love science so much to get me through all the rough courses.

Anyone else out there used elements from the periodic table to spell out a word or phrase on their skin?
