Last Wednesday we woke up to the sad news that Professor Stephen Hawking had died at his home in Cambridge at the age of 76. Hawking, who's fondly referred to as 'the brightest star in Science' was a physicist and author of ;A Brief History of Time'. He contributed massively to modern Science, and his ideas 'shaped' modern cosmology. Although he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in the early 60's when he was just 21 years old, Hawkings defied the prognosis that he'd only have a couple of years left to live, and he went on to live a happy life until 2018.
For many, Hawkings was an inspiration, and whether you're into Science or not, I'm sure you can appreciate Hawking's contribution to to the academic world, and all he did for Science. Some fans have taken their appreciation to the next level by cementing their love for Hawkings with a tattoo, and at Magnum Tattoo Supplies where you can purchase Dynamic Tattoo Ink online, we love a good tattoo, especially when it's dedicated to one of the world's greatest! So, let's take a look at some of these sensational Stephen Hawking tattoos!
First off, an absolute beauty from the insanely talented David Corden. This piece is a wonderful tribute to the Hawkings
I'm not sure who the artist is, but I really like this one. It's a lovely lighthearted tribute to Stephen Hawkings, and I love the galaxy effect on his outfit - a rather fitting piece
From one of the masters of realism - Den Yakovlev. A 'Zombie-eyed' Stephen Hawkings. This is such a detailed piece, and I'm a huge fan of Yakovlev's work
An incredible black and grey portrait of Professor Hawkings
I particularly love this piece done by Chad Chase. Not only is it a beautifully intricate piece of art that captures Stephen's likeness brilliantly, but the cosmos scene that surrounds Hawkins is the perfect touch to represent his life works
This tattoo done by Lizzi Bathory represents 'Hawking Radiation', the theory that "black holes should in fact thermally create and emit sub-atomic particles, known today as Hawking radiation, until they exhaust their energy and evaporate completely".
Lastly, a stunning tattoo done by Rebecca Kingsorad. I love this piece, and I like how Rebecca has captured little details like the checkerd pattern on Stephen's collar. A lovely tribute to one of Science's greatest
I hope you've enjoyed looking at these excellent Stephen Hawkings tattoos that are all incredible pieces honouring a truly inspirational person, who told us to 'Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet' - a lovely mantra to live by!
