Show us your Einstein inspired tattoo!

After a video of a man getting Einstein inked on his leg surfaced online, we're in search of more tattoos of the beloved genius.

Ronny Rivera Reyes is one step closer to genius.

The 27-year-old from Washington State just got a tattoo of Albert Einstein on his left leg. "He was the most influential person of the 20th century," Reyes told From The Grapevine. "Even today, his work has changed the way we look at science and physics, and it is helping evolve the future of science as we know it." He plans to eventually cover his entire leg with tattoos of influential people – including George Washington, James Dean and Martin Luther King Jr. He already has one of Spanish artist Salvador Dali.


The Einstein tattoo was applied by his brother Alfredo, a 36-year-old who owns a tattoo parlor in El Salvador. This is the first Einstein tattoo he has ever done.

All of this got us thinking: There are probably plenty of people with Einstein-inspired tattoos – either of the beloved genius himself or something related to his work (like the equation E=MC2). We'd love to see them! We'll compile the best ones into a future post. Want to be included? Upload your Einstein tattoo photo here. (If you can post a high resolution version, that would be great.) Let us know your name, where you're from and why you wanted Einstein to forever be a part of you.
