That’s how you fix a tattoo.

When I was a theist one of my favorite quotes was from 2 Corinthians 5.  I  was all about “Walk By Faith,” and was going to get a tattoo on my foot built around that phrase that I thought was amazing at the time.  Fortunately my common sense kicked in before I went through with it.  There is no way I would have been able to correct it like this.  It would have been a very bad thing. lol

This is great!
When I was in high school, my first tattoo was going to be the super trendy and totally awesome Jerusalem cross on the ankle (don’t worry, I didn’t do it).
Edited to add: HOLY SHIT.  I never knew the history of the Jerusalem cross until right now.  We were given necklaces with those crosses on them at church camp and I used to wear them with pride.  We were told they were “symbols of your commitment to share the gospel.”  They are from the freaking crusades!!

I have the structural formula for propane on my bicep!

"Endocytosis is subject to extensive and complex regulation and has a major role in cell signaling, cell-cell communication, and interactions between cells and their environment. In this issue [of Cell], Liberali et al. present a comparative, unbiased, and quantitative study of regulatory interactions between signaling, membrane traffic, and the cytoskeleton. They develop a hierarchical map of regulatory genetic interactions in membrane trafficking based upon their discovery of emergent properties of the endocytic membrane system and the evolution of its complexity as well as distinct regulatory programs that control subsets of endocytic activities and organelles.
