Tattoos of chemical formulas are very little seen and are very striking, the truth is that this type of tattoo has gained popularity in recent times but we can not qualify as a widespread design because it is difficult to find a person who has a chemical formula tattooed on his skin. But this is not a negative symptom, as in many matters tattoo body art is driven by trends and fashions. Below, you will be able to take a look at different types of designs to get ideas in case you are thinking of getting a formula tattoo. The truth is that we could be facing a new trend.
Most Popular Chemical Symbol Tattoos
Tattoos based on this science are usually worn by people who study and work in the world of chemistry, but, anyway, they can be a good option for anyone who appreciates the study of the things that surround us. A variety of ideas for chemistry tattoos can be derived from these variants:
Laboratory instruments: test tubes, beakers, flasks, and Pietri dishes are common, especially with colorful liquids inside. Also items such as thermometers, microscopes and lighters.
Dna chains: although it may be more of a biology than a chemistry motif, the iconic Ribonucleic Acid chain is also often part of those compositions that pay tribute to chemistry.
Elements of the periodic table: a rather original idea is to use the nomenclatures of the elements to compose words. Likewise, the representation of the atoms of the elements that can be significant for the tattoo wearer are also novel alternatives.
Chemical formulas: in organic chemistry each element is represented in different ways. All of them are based on hexagons. This opens up a whole world of possibilities for chemical tattoos because anything you want can be represented in this way. Some common formulas are chocolate, coffee or the so-called love hormone.
Books and notes: although it is less frequent, the elements required to complete the study of this science can also be part of chemistry tattoos.

Tattooing a chemical formula that reminds us of a certain element that for a relevant reason has marked a moment in our lives is an ideal option. But there is also another reason that may lead us to opt for a chemical formula design, and that is that, not long ago, tattoos of chemical formulas that refer to drugs, whether legal or illegal, became popular in several places.
