simple….this quadratic formula give you…….2 dots….. in a grid…. Pac Man eat dots…. so…. But this is weird….

you mean up to 2 dots? Yea, and then there are the imaginary dots too…

Well the Quadratic formula does give you intercepts, and Pac Man is trying to intercept the ghost and….. I Have nothing. Maybe because Pac man and Math test are 2 things we try to cheat at? I wonder if they would allow him to take an Algebra test in school with that thing?

What a waste of a possibly more sensical geek tattoo…

It's a short cut to an easy answer… pretty simple ;)

Maybe quadratic equation has two solutions, and there are two possible solutions for pac-man, eat or be eaten, or maybe this guy is laughing at us thinking how he made us lost our time..

this hurts my brain. I'm all nerd tattoos, but this guy failed.

all FOR nerd tattoos. Now he has me failing, too.

Well that's easy… Pac-Man is "x" and clearly the ghost represents "0"…

um, hate to be the simpleton here but, uh, maybe he's the pac man and he hates math…or he's so good at it he eats it for breakfast. it might not have anything to do with the actual equation involved.

I'll go with what Ipodbernier said… The Quadratic gives you 2 dot, then replase the quatratic with those dots and you get "pacman – dot – dot – edible ghost" just like you see it when you play…

This "tattoo" looks like it was drawn on with marker pens.

Pac-Man could be played on graphical calculators, so when caught playing in class/lecture the most common excuse was "I'm not playing games, I'm plotting a quadratic equation".

I go with Stuart Eagles, I did this a lot!

why the quadratic formula? If you're old enough to have a tattoo, that formula would already be ingrained in your miiind

Definately not trying to be a tatoo snob but that doesn't look real. I have many and you can definately tell a diffrence. Theres almost a raised texture to a real tatoo. This really does look like a sharpy.

A bit off subject I know…

Or… he could just have the Pac-Man and Ghost tattoo and he fills in the middle with whatever is bugging him that day/week with a sharpie.

Not a bad idea.

hehe you might be on to something there….

Mathman… mathman…

Mathman… mathman…
