My latest tattoo: “The Cosmic Perspective” by the insanely talented Balazs Bercsenyi

This piece serves as a humbling reminder of our connection to the Universe at the largest and smallest scales.

The cosmic perspective not only embodies our genetic kinship with all life on Earth but also values our chemical kinship with any yet-to-be discovered life in the universe, as well as our atomic kinship with the universe itself. Symbolized by the elements of earth, air, fire and water, the design illustrates our interconnectedness to the processes of our planet. In the bottom center, a stylized carbon stone represents the key elemental component of all known life on Earth. Emerging from there, a symbol for humanity gaining consciousness and pondering its connection to cosmos, gazing at the galactic and stellar processes in which we came from.

I hope this design serves as a daily reminder to embrace the unknown, to stay curious, to stay humble, to remain open-minded and ultimately cherish our brief moment in the Sun.
