Default How to depict yeast in a tattoo?

I'm looking to get a tattoo of the four ingredients in beer. Water, malted barley, and hops are all kind of a given to what they look like. How can I illustrate yeast? The molecule? They just look like little circles. I'm just not sure what reference to give to the tattoo artist.

I'm getting two mash paddles that are crossed. In the "X" voids will be the ingredients. Let me know what everyone thinks. Thank you.

Yeast is pretty boring to look at in its normal state. Even budding yeast cells might be pretty strange to look at in tattoo form. Maybe you should go with a yeast vial or yeast starter to depict yeast.

Edit: you could always go with yeast, Good Eats style

put the hop cone on the top void so it resembles a skull & cross bones, yet stays 100% true to what you're going for. as for the yeast, I like the tart side idea.

I like it! This is closer to what I'm thinking.

Keep em coming. My girl said a package of Safale 05 but I'm not a huge fan of product placement. I use other yeasts too, so it doesn't make much sense.
