For the mathematics behind this, see fractals.

For more fractal tattoos, see: Fractopia.

Hi Jo. I don't know of any technology that will produce the tattoo. But if you need one for just the fractal, this works nicely: http://www.fractalsciencekit.com/

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
