Um, guys: public radio temporary tattoos.  Apparently some stations will offer these at pledge drive time.  And WE LOVE THEM.

Radiolab listener Christina Auldridge sent us a picture of her fantastic new tattoo, based on the brain parachute image from the Radiolab website.  We’re so in love with this work.  (Next time you’re in Oklahoma and want a sweet science tattoo, check in with Levi Hatch of Think Ink.)

Maud Wagner, the first known female tattooist in the U.S., 1911. In 1907, she traded a date with her husband-to-be for tattoo lessons. Their daughter, Lotteva Wagner, was also a tattooist.
