The Chronicle is asking for photos of scholars who tattoo their research on themselves. It is actually a fairly common practice--I have a good friend who has tattooed a symbol of every major research project she has conducted--and makes a lot of sense. When you research and write on a topic so intensely that it becomes a part of you it only makes sense to take the next step and literally make it a part of you.
