oh yes. very dumb to have a mathematical equation of some great significance on her back. just because it`s something you would not do does not make them dumb.

you sound like a rude person who argues about things they don`t know. and fittest means, biologically speaking, those that produce the most offspring. not necessarily strong. not necessarily smart. they just don`t get eaten, then they have babies, they are biologically fit to cast their genes onward.

maybe, but I`d hope that anyone who went through the time and pain to get this permanently etched into her skin would have some grasp of mathematics. Then again, a guy I know has the first 100 or so digits of Pi spiraling from his shoulder to his elbow and he never studied mathematics. It`s still a drating sweet tat. I did study math in college, but I don`t think I`ll be getting any math tats- mainly because I`ve forgotten virtually everything I learned.

It is a matter of beauty. Because, as mentioned by others already, e,i,pi,1,0 are fundamental mathematical constants.

e - Euler`s number, base of natural logarithms

i - imaginary unit of the complex numbers

pi - ratio of a circle`s circumference to diameter (in Euklidian Space)

1 - multiplicative identity (multiplying with one does not change a number)

0 - additive identity (adding zero does not change a number)

Why would nayone scar himself with a boring equation like e^i(pi) = -1? But then, why would anyone scar himself ...?

Unless there`s something I`m not getting?

I would quite happily have that inked if I thought I could explain it.....

It is really well done though, I have to admit.

The point of writing it this way is to show "the beautiful relationship between 5 seemingly unrelated numbers" according to my Calc. book :-P

This way includes 0 as well, which is a pretty important number.

Granted they are the same, that`s just the way I learned it; it sounds better. Oh, and I never liked the +1=0 part. We always wrote e^(pi*i)=-1

Yes I know just how nerdy I sound.

what, e, i, pi, 1 and 0?

which is impossible as there is no log of -1 in any base, which is why i is an imaginary number

Given enough time, I think a spyphilitic monkey with down-syndrome could have pooped this out.

The prettiest would either be the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, Newton`s first law or my personal favorite:

The time-dependent Schrodinger wave equation.

That said, seriously? you`re gonna get it engraved on your back? >_<

I want four.

no.

I think I`m in love
