Wow! I really like this one. The top photo accurately shows what appears to be a Mobitz type I "Wenckebach" heart block (note the skipped heart beat right in the middle of the tattoo). The bottom photo accurately shows the three views from a 12-lead EKG that reveal a ST segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI), also known as a heart attack. And from the look of it, it was a big one.
I couldn't find the original website where this came from, but my guess is the owner of this tattoo is a heart attack survivor.
