Trevor’s Multiple Geeky Tattoos

I don’t even know where to start with Trevor. He’s a paleontologist at the La Brea Tar Pits with lots of tattoos. I’ll let him explain in his own words:

I’m a paleontologist at the La Brea Tar Pits. That said, I’m also a hardcore geek. I’ve got LEGOs, Transformers, COBRA, and all sorts of crazy stuff all over my desk. I’m even using a Grimlock mouse right now. Naturally, I need some tats to fill out the void… hehe.

First one is a frontal view of a Sabertooth Cat skull (Smilodon fatalis) on my left shin. It happens to be the same skull we have on our mounted specimen in the museum.

Second is the Page Museum logo. I love my job. I get to play with big dead animals all day!

Third is me… as a LEGO figure. Some people get bricks. Some people get minifigs. However, it tends to be the height of narcissism to get a tattoo of yourself… so I combat that by rockin’ the LEGO “Me”ni-fig.

Fourth is the Decepticons Logo. Always go with the bad guys. Now, this is a big tattoo… on the outside of my right calf.

Converse logos on the inside ankles, right where they are on the high-top Chuck Taylors. ‘nuff said.

…last one is the logo of the parent museum of the one I work at… from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

Thanks for sending all of them in! Something tells me you’re probably not planning on stopping with just these.
