Winter will soon be upon us and what better way to ring in the season than with a little winter-themed ink. As the undisputed symbol of winter, the snowflake represents a cold yet undeniably beautiful season that many people look forward to even more than summer.
Snowflakes start out as supercooled water droplets. As the flakes fall towards earth, complex shapes start to emerge in incredible detail and uniqueness. So unique in fact that for almost a century it was thought that no two snowflakes were alike. However, this was debunked in 1988 when a researcher discovered two identical “hollow column” snowflakes thus disproving the claim.
While not everyone lives in a climate that yields snowflakes, these individuals have found a permanent way to ensure a white Christmas every year.
