Some guy has had the frontispiece of Hobbes’ Leviathan tattooed on his shoulder.

Any other political theory/political science tats out there?

Daniel Agger Danish footballer who plays for Liverpool, has a fine collection of tatoo’s based on Danish mythology and ancient kings. http://soccer-xtreme.blogspot.com/2011/02/daniel-agger-shows-back-tattoo.html

Actually not REALLY the Leviathan cover:

I suppose this mis-identification is the result of the low regard in which the discipline holds political theory!

PS: It was nice to see you earlier in the month.

I have an ex student who has a JStor tat. Not the same thing but pretty damn impressive. Jstor sent him some swag after he sent them a picture.

Almost entirely on the econ/finance side of the spectrum, but there was the guy who has the gaussian copula formula (of financial crisis/calculating financial risk fame) tattoo’d on his arm
