These Albert Einstein Tattoos Are Relatively Amazing


In 1879 Albert Einstein was born in the German Empire and during his studies a young Einstein developed a passion for mathematics and science. At the age of 16, Einstein traveled to Switzerland for school and in 1901 established Swiss citizenship. After finishing school, Einstein struggled to find a job as a teacher and eventually got a job at the Federal Office for Intellectual Property Bern in the patent office. Working at the patent office aroused Einstein’s curiosity about electrical mechanics and the relationship between space and time. Around the same time, Einstein began to publish academic papers and soon after earned his doctorate from the University of Zurich. In the same year, at just 26 years old, he gained enormous notoriety in the scientific world after publishing articles on the photoelectric effect, Brownian motion, special relativity and his famous formula, E=mc2.

After becoming an academic celebrity, Einstein spent the next decades sharing his theories in cities around the world. The United States made a special impression on Einstein, where he befriended Pulitzer Prize winner Upton Sinclair and silent film icon Charlie Chaplin. In 1933, to avoid the Nazi Party, Einstein left Germany and worked with world leaders in England and Turkey to help Jewish scientists emigrate. In 1940, Einstein officially became an American citizen and took up residence in Princeton, New Jersey, where he worked at the Institute for Advanced Study.

Einstein’s impact on science, specific to modern physics, was enormous and he influenced millions of brilliant minds around the world. And aside from inspiring the scientific world, her likeness and what she represents has also made its way into the tattoo industry.
