Tattoo My Science, a new interactive activity for festivals and events.

Scientists created designs based on our cutting edge biology research and we turned these into fun, temporary tattoos!  

Visitors to festivals and events can choose a temporary tattoo from our collection of scientist-created designs. They will have a chance to discuss the research with the scientist applying their tattoo.

Afterward, they can show off their new tattoo (and science knowledge) to friends, family and colleagues!

Our aim is to increase public trust and interest in fundamental biology and cancer research.

This idea is based on a similar project organised by our colleagues at the Wellcome Centre for Cell Biology in Edinburgh.
