If you had to get a science related tattoo, what would you get?

A punnett square.

Isn't that one of those diagrams designed by Reginald Punnett and used by biologists to determine the probability of an offspring having a particular genotype?

I barely remember, but is it still made by comparing all the possible combinations of alleles from the mother with those from the father?

I know there's some situations where Punnet squares don't apply (like when alleles are imprinted or if they're physically linked on the same chromosome), but I still think that'd be a great tattoo.
