Chris Hamilton, a PhD student from East Carolina University who is studying North American tarantulas (see his blog HERE), was over in London, UK this week examining spider specimens in the collection my wife Jan curates. Jan spotted the unusual tattoos on his arms and thought I might be interested. Although I'm not a big fan of tattoos I was certainly very impressed by Chris' excellent choice of subject - especially the one on his right arm. Chris says that Wallace is his right-hand man and that he had the tattoos done last summer as a present to himself for finishing his Masters degree.
I wonder if anyone else in the world has a Wallace tattoo? There are certainly lots of Darwin ones around (e.g. see http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/loom/tag/darwin-tattoos/), but that's hardly surprising as there's lots of Darwin everything.
