LSD

D-lysergic acid diethlyamide...what a strange, wonderous, and downright amazing molecule. Having a background in biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology, I have long been fascinated by this enigmatic chemical. I initially planned on getting the regular simple stick molecular structure, and sat on that idea for close to 7 years. One night, fairly recently, a tattoo artist friend mentioned to me over lunch that the "ball and stick" model would look much better...what a simple, yet absolutely brilliant idea of which I have no earthly clue why I didn't think of first. I had to let him tattoo me! It's better than I ever could have imagined. The picture was taken within a few hours of completion, and there is tattoo ointment over it, making it glisten and giving the appearance of "spots" on certain atoms.
