Heart Burn


Seen at www.tattrx.com




This tattoo amalgamates an accurate heart rhythm (sinus rhythm) along with an anatomical heart and flames. The EKG heartbeats march out perfectly all the way through past the part of the rhythm hidden behind the heart, and the heart itself appears to be more or less anatomically correct, despite it being drawn in "They Live" style.

Tips: Eyeballing this heart rate, it may be either slightly lower than normal, or on the low end of normal. The QT interval also appears a bit long. These are incredibly minor and forgivable issues considering the limitless number of bad EKG tattoos out there. When in doubt, ask a health care provider who routinely reads and interprets EKGs.
