Cosmic Ray Traces

Hi Paul,

Love the Museum Tattoo blog – I had to send you this one for it. Not the best ever pic being a selfie of my left shoulder, but this is my tattoo of cosmic ray traces in a bubble chamber.

I had it done because I like the image mainly, but it was actually inked at Life during an adult late night event on body modification.  Among other attractions we had tattoo demonstrations from one of the artier tattoo parlours in the region, and I was the subject of the demo in front of an audience of about 200 people.

Even better, the cost of the tattoo came out of the event budget!
