Long before Neil deGrasse Tyson was trolling James Cameron on Twitter, there was the original rock star astrophysicist, Mr. Carl Sagan. Sagan was responsible to opening an entire generation’s minds to everything beyond this pale blue dot we call Earth. He is the reason countless thousands of people got into science, and has earned a place in the upper echelons of scientists. There are not many scientists that inspire people to get a tattoo, let alone enough to fill a Tattoodo article, but Carl Sagan sure has. So, let’s take our eyes off of the skies for a moment, and marvel at the wonder that is these Carl Sagan tattoos.
But Sagan is most famous for his work on Cosmos, the most watched program in the history of public broadcasting, having been viewed by some 500 million people across 60 countries. This series explored cosmic science in a way that a layperson could easily relate to. This brilliant television program made Sagan a household name and opened a generation’s mind to the cosmos.
Don’t these awesome Carl Sagan tattoos just make you want to visit space yourself? Well, you can’t. At least not yet, anyway. But you can get totally baked and re-watch Cosmos. It’s the next best thing.
