Riemsdyk’s Gravid Uterus Tattoo

Riemsdyk Gravid Uterus Tattoo Plablo Xno

Jan van Riemsdyk Gravid Uterus 1774
Illustration via Dream Anatomy

This is one historical anatomical illustration that I have yet to see inked on someone’s body until now!  Rodrigo down in Mexico City sent me his Riemsdyk tattoo saying, “People think I’m crazy but I really like Riemsdyk`s drawings and the history behind them.”  The illustration was originally drawn by Jan van Riemsdyk, in Anatomia uteri human gravidi (The Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus), by anatomist William Hunter (1774).

Tattoo by Pablo Xno, Mexico City.
