    Re: Correlation between tattoos and IQ

    It DOES depend on the tattoo and the location. I have ink, but none of it is visible in a professional setting. I also know a guy that has two full sleeves and a dead hooker stuffed into a trash can on his chest. Just saying...

    Oh, and the answer to that math problem on that guys back is 42.

    If that was true he would win the prize for nerdiest tattoo ever, as well as demonstrating that his intelligence rivaled that of dolphins, although still paling in comparison to that of a mouse, 42 is not the solution though

    My tattoo is 3 lines of equations, the top is the Born Oppenheimer Approximation, the second line is the equation in the form of a 3-Dimensional Schroedinger Equation, and the solution in the form of a Schroedinger Equation. As a biochemist and molecular biophysicist I studied a lot of this stuff and I must say, Schroedinger was my favorite and well, I had to do it.

    depends on the ink, and it does make me question their taste at times. I know a guy that has a "tramp stamp" that says "Man Whore" in old english font.

    I happen to have a couple of tats, neither visible unless I am wearing a wife beater T.

    Since I and everybody else I know has tattoos, it doesn't really change my impression of a person.
    What kind of tattoo and where- if I'm going to make a snap judgment about somebody, it would be based on that.
    When I meet somebody my age who has no tattoos, I'm mildly curious about how they managed to be a teen and a 20-something in the 1990s and emerged completely un-inked.
    I figure they have an interesting story to tell- very different than mine, and therefore of interest to me.

    It's not a "T" if it's a wife beater.

    No, redneck is no shirt and no shoes unless they have a court appearance.

    Tattoos don't really change my opinion of someone's IQ. Though I do find them sexy, depending on the tat.
