Geeky Tattoos Reader Round-Up #6

duckrabbit tattooGreek Typewriter

Kris Phillips, a Graduate Assistant in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Iowa, writes in to share his two geeky tattoos.  The first is a drawing of Wittgenstein’s duck-rabbit from Philosophical Investigations.  The second is an ancient Greek typewriter spelling out “Philosophia” in Greek.

Aperture TattooGabriel Caffrey, a photography geek, sent in his series of four aperture rings on his back that symbolize his love for photography, the act of composition and catching the “Decisive Moment”.  While they aren’t technically mathematically precise (c’mon it’s skin!) they range from about f/2.8 – f/11mm.  Idexa Stern of Black and Blue Tattoo both designed and inked these for Gabriel.

Green Lantern tattooAnd finally Loyd sends in his Green Lantern tattoo.  He says he’s going to pair it up with a Blue Lantern tattoo sometime this summer.
