A Most Useful Tattoo

Carl Zimmer’s collection of science tattoo photos (reported previously on Neatorama) is growing. There are now 119 submitted tattoos! This eight inch forearm ruler from Mikey is so handy, he uses it every day. Link

Just a note, that ruler tattoo isn't exactly used to measure lengths of ribbon to wrap your christmas gift, it's the sort of tattoo normally worn by homosexuals to show their interest in anal fisting, as the markings allow them to easily measure how many inches of fist and forearm they can shove up another homosexual's rectum.

some of the other ones are really really cool concepts, and if I could find a competent person to do it I'd definitely do the same, geeky as it may be :P

unfortunately, a lot of them really weren't done by competent people, but hey, their choice to go there!

The real tragedy is that the ruler is not accurate. It appears that the distance from 0 to 1 is larger than any other 1 inch measurement. The greatest difference is between 0 to 1 and 7 to 8! What's up with that?!? What does he have to measure with a shrinking ruler?!?
