this is the golden mean spiral, discovered by a mathematician named fibbonacci. it revolutionized fine art by providing perspective and dimension. the golden mean spiral is also something called a fractal. in math a fractal is an image or pattern that breaks up into smaller versions of itself, but within each fraction the larger picture is contained. i think this is a pretty beautiful idea when it comes to the universe. and can i just say that having a tattoo on your lower back does not a tramp doth make..
