Tattoo WMD

I was thinking about how popular biohazard symbol tattoos are in this community (1, 2, 3, 4). I assume that’s because biological contamination is especially important and life threatening to people involved in invasive body art, more so than it just being some sort of badass symbol…? Anyway, when I got sent the tattoo pictured in this entry (by Nick Whybrow at Tattoo Inc in Colchester UK) I was reminded how rare nuclear symbol tattoos are — I think in almost eleven years of running BME I have received only two, whereas I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of biohazard images. I have seen nuclear subs and nuclear families and even the Springfield nuclear plant, but the symbol itself, hardly ever…

PS. Got one and want to prove me wrong? Submit it at!

    I got my biohazard tattoo in the early 1990s, not as a political statement but because Evan Seinfeld is HAWT.
