Cue the uptight prigs that are going to say this isn"t math, but rather something else.

You just put part of a text book on your arm. Congrats!

Wait, never mind. It`s not as good.

Hey, look, A0 to A8 paper!

I wonder if you change weight the proportions would be wrong? Like a triangle drawn on the surface of a sphere would have angles that add up to more than 180 degrees.

The only reason I knew even where to start with this tatoo was because I`ve just read through Echo by Terry Moore^^

@simbha: that`s because you`re APPLIED math :p For us PURE mathematicians, this is instantly recognizable. My first thought was that it`s a little dull for a tattoo if the golden rectangle.
Also, punk7643, that just goes to show how much art relies on math :)

[quote]would that be the golden ratio? C is to B as B is to A?[/quote]

So close, I`ll give you partial credit.
The Golden Ratio is a/b = b/(a+b)
or in your words, A is to B as B is to A+B

It`s really the house of leaves.

Thats just a waste of advertising space

I WAS going to say this applies more to art than to math even though it it mathematical.....The Golden Rectangle is a fairly common proportion in art work. Piet Mondrian is probably the most obvious use of it and modular grid systems.

Funny thing is - I have a math background (BS in applied math) and yet, what pops into my mind first is Piet Mondrian... not Golden Ratio.

would that be the golden ratio? C is to B as B is to A?
