This is the event for anyone who has ever thought of having an image of the double helix imprinted on an arm or buttocks. Author Carl Zimmer and body artist Mandy Sauler will discuss Zimmer’s book Science Ink, which looks at the devoted men and women of the scientific world who have commemorated their research with body art. They’ll also cover the use of tattoos in modern medicine and cosmetics.
