Turn Your Skin Into A Biology Textbook With Anatomical Heart Tattoos

These anatomical heart tattoos really get our pulses racing

There’s a ticking time bomb in your chest just waiting to murder you. I’m talking about your heart -- by far the most fatal organ, with heart disease accounting for nearly a quarter of all death in the US. The heart gives us life and she takes it back and such a powerful force is one to be held in reverence. What better way to show respect to the god of your blood than with an anatomical heart tattoo?


Your heart will beat approximately 2.21 billion times before it stops — assuming no fatal calamity befalls you in the meanwhile and you live to a median age of death. And then somewhere around that magic number, your heart stops working and you die. And that’s the best case scenario in life!


Nothing scares me as badly as my own circulatory system. It’s just one of many fun, messed-up complexes I have. I live in constant fear of my body killing me. I panic about blood

clots more than anyone my age should. So terrible is my fear of my own heart and circulation that I refused to do any research on heart disease for this article because the specifics of it give me panic attacks – symptoms of which are highly similar to heart attacks. This notion then just creates a terrible negative feedback loop that ends with me on the floor hyperventilating in the fetal position.

Here for your enjoyment are pictures of people who are not heart cowards, like myself. These brave souls can deal with looking at a human heart every day of their lives, which is surely something that I would find most unpleasant.

I’m envious of these brave people and their anatomical heart tattoos. Well, maybe they’re not necessarily brave people, but they’re normal people, and that’s what I really envy.
