Hey all, hope you are having a fantastic week filled with vegan delights and good times.
Our next contributor comes from Amanda the protein scientist in New York. Amanda says:
“My tattoo is on my left forearm and was done by Claire at Fun City Tattoo in NYC. I’m a protein x-ray crystallographer, so I wanted my tattoo to reflect my love of the molecular world. My tattoo is a peptide (protein) that spells out ENERGY in amino acids (the building blocks of proteins which have one letter abbreviations).”
“Although it isn’t clearly a vegan tattoo, energy symbolizes, to me, the cycle of life…that we come from energy and return to energy and therefore, we should respect all life as we are really all one. Afterall, according to a fundamental principle of physics, energy is neither created nor destroyed. ENERGY is the symbol of my life!”
I think its a neat tattoo and I know we all like energy around here, especially in the form of cupcakes, tofu, muffins and vegan lasagna.
Thanks a bunch for making me feel dumb and also for being a vegan scientist! Yay!
