Tattoo my Science

The Tattoo my Science project invites researchers to design a temporary tattoo that they feel represents their work. Teams of researchers then take the tattoos out to events and chat more about what they do with the public and hear their thoughts on the research, how it’s done and what they feel scientists should look at in the future.
