Now I Just Need to Get a Skilled Design Student to Take My Class

I have a crazy idea.

I want to have someone design a very cool, conversation-starting mathematical image and I want to have it made into a temporary tattoo. Then I'll give the tattoos out to my students and encourage them to wear them (somewhere that shows!) for extra credit. Ideally someone will ask them about the image, and they'll have the chance to explain math to someone.

Considering that it looks like I can get 1000 of these for $70, one print run should last me a few years.
