Tree of life tattoo for evolution fans

For giggles, I modified Charles Darwin’s tree of life sketch and sent it to a company that manufactures temporary tattoos. If you happen to be model quality and would like to help promote science, drop me a line and I can send you one. I think it’s good to have images like these show up during searches for “evolution” and “survival of the fittest” so that the public doesn’t just associate evolution with just old academics with questionable grooming (sadly, true).

I also dropped the image into Redbubble if you need a sticker or laptop case (for example). Here’s the original sketch, if you’re curious:

One month until Darwin Day

Just a heads up, folks: Darwin Day is on February 12th. If you’d like to help spread the word by being a tattoo model, there’s enough time for me to send you a temporary tattoo like the one shown below. It’s based on Charles Darwin’s “tree of life” sketch.  Click here for details.

Collar bone evolution

Photograph of a tree-of-life tattoo on a woman’s neck.  Taken on Darwin Day, February 12th. Neck is actually a Brit, so fitting. And she likes beetles!

Want to see more?  Here you go.  Or did you click on this darn post thinking you’d get information on the evolution of the clavicle??!  Well, it’s one of the bones that was involved with pectoral fins, back when our ancestors lived in water.  There you go!  Everyone happy, now?
