Would you get the face of your favourite physicist tattooed on your leg?
Jack Newton spent six hours getting a portrait of cosmologist Stephen Hawking emblazoned on his leg after reading the physicist’s popular tome A Brief History of Time — according to the UK paper Metro.
Newton — 23 and apparently no relation to Hawking’s distant predecessor at Cambridge — admits that he didn’t understand Hawking’s book, but respected the 66-year old physicist.
