What's the story behind this tattoo / piercing? This tattoo is my Mad Scientist Hermit Crab. His name is Pinch. I got him to symbolize one of my strengths: Science. Not long ago I completed two Bachelors of Science in Chemistry/Biochemisty & Biotechnology. I wanted a tattoo to represent this. The flask, test tube, and electric Jacobs ladder all go to represent science. I chose the hermit crab, because not only are they strong little guys, and I find them fascinating, but their exoskeleton is made up of chitin, a very strong compound, which would also help to emphasize the idea of strength. I placed this tattoo on my inner bicep so that I could flex it as if to show one of my strengths: Science. Artist: Scotty Munster from St. Cloud, MN
