As far as tattoo ideas go, this illustration is on fire! Shown here is a plate depicting the “Atomic Theory of the Hydrocarbon Flame” from A Text-Book of Medical Chemistry and Toxicology (1908). The accompanying caption reads, “The red discs are oxygen atoms, the black are carbon, the blue are hydrogen; the black circles in the yellow zone are incandescent carbon atoms emitting light. The products of the combustion are water and carbon dioxide.” As explained in the textbook, the illustration shows “what the chemist imagines to occur when he explains the burning of common illuminating gas in a luminous flame” (page 113). . . #OthmerLibrary #TattooableTuesday #TattooInspo #TattooInspiration #TattooIdeas #Tattoos #Flame #Chemistry #FlameTattoo #Candles
