Darwin's Finches

"I have been an evolution enthusiast and also an activist for educating public about the theory of evolution for a long time," writes Duygu Ozpolat, a graduate student in developmental biology at Tulane University. "I could not imagine a better tattoo: Darwin's finches arranged to look like a butterfly ... I got it in 2009--Darwin's 200th anniversary and On The Origin of Species' 150th anniversary."
