Lucy's Radiolarian

I met Lucy yesterday in Penn Station after I spotted this cool tattoo on her right arm:

Lucy credits the artist JK5 with this tattoo. She said he did this out of Saved Tattoo, but he freelances and has also worked out of Dare Devil Tattoo.

And what is this on her arm?

Lucy explained that this is based on an illustration by German biologist/naturalist Ernst Haeckel and depicts a creature known as a radiolarian, an amoeboid protozoa. This is something you would see on the great science tattoo site, Carl Zimmer's Science Tattoo Emporium

Thanks to Lucy for sharing this wonderful tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
