Equilibirum Tattoo

equilibrium_tattoo

If you want an “equilibirum” tattoo – you can be very direct about it and just write it out, or you can have an yin-yang or some floral design.

But to show that you really UNDERSTAND what equilibirum means then do what Don Erdman did; get a tattoo of Cauchy’s relation.

My Equalibrium tattoo, needs some touch up next time I am in to get something new.

Alpha tattoo

Hyneck says

The meaning is very private. But it’s an alpha (?) if someone has problems to recognize it.

Pure Pi and e Tattoo

pi_tattoo

Steve Vallis explains:

The symbol on the left of the image is pi and the symbol on the right is the chinese character for chaos. The dots signify the values of pi and e respectively with each row of dots equating to one digit of each number. I plan to have it extended another 3 or 4 lines lower in the future with the lines fading out to reinforce the infinite nature of the two numbers.

The whole tattoo represents three things to me mainly: infinity, chaos theory (sensitive dependence) and mathematics & patterns in nature. The symbol on the right of my body is Pi.

Tuesday Tattoo – 100 digits of Pi

pi_tattoo

Another in my series of “Once in a Blue Moon” portraits. This customer had the first 100 digits of Pi tattooed up his arm and shoulder. For those curious I only saw the first 73 of them, though he did offer to remove his shirt right there in the store. We really do have one of the most interesting, and coolest, customer bases. Now too bad I cannot remember which camera I was shooting that day. Think this was the Leica M3…

This is another view of the same Pi tatoo that we saw before:

Black ink tattoo – Euler identity

Euler’s Identity is one of the most fascinating mathematical equation. Interestingly, it also shows 9 concepts of math in a single equation: concepts of : 1, 0, pi, e, i, addition, multiplication, exponentiation, and equality.

Nicholas shared his math tattoo:

ImageTo really show the complexity of Euler identity, you need more than one dimensions.

Here is the Euler Identity, in invisible ink. You can only see it under UV lights.

Nicholas’s explains:

I got this tattoo about a month ago. Its a UV tattoo of e^(i pi/2) which using euler’s formula is i. I thought i as an invisible tattoo was a great idea. You could think of a black light as the complex plane.
