This NASA Artist's Climate Change Tattoo Is Amazing
Justin Guariglia, an artist with a partnership with NASA, got an incredible tattoo showing off climate change statistics.
Scientists have been banging on about climate change for decades now. It's like ALRIGHT, WE GET IT! The world is screwed. Can I go back to driving my Hummer like the stupid American that I am?
(In all seriousness though, are Hummers even legal anymore? I haven't seen one since it came out that they get like a 1/2 mile per gallon. It's definitely, totally fucking up the environment.)
With all the evidence in favor of human-caused climate change, it's crazy to think that we aren't putting more effort into finding ways to combat it. It's crazy that people are still out there who deny that it exists.
That's why artist Justin Guariglia, who has a collaboration deal with NASA, decided to get a chart of the NASA data that shows the Earth's temperature has been rising since 1880.
The tattoo goes all the way up his arm, showing the drastic rise in temperatures our planet has endured, according to data from NASA.
Guariglia is known for his artistic exploits that focus on the Anthropocene, the new geological epoch that shows the impact humans have had on the environment, influencing land, water, and air.
In the video below you can really get a feeling for how extreme the change has been as you watch Guariglia twist his arm showing his tattoo.
Justin Guariglia is hoping his art can get more people to pay attention to the pressing issues surrounding our climate. His impressive partnership with NASA seems like a good start.
