The Value of a Tattoo in Higher Education
Our Dr. Lodder reminded me to share this sweet snippet from the NY Times Freakonomics blog:
David B. Wiseman, a psychologist, showed 128 undergraduate students photographs of tattooed and non-tattooed female models, described as "college instructors." He found that college students prefer tattoos: "Analyses indicated that the presence of tattoos was associated with some positive changes in ratings: students' motivation, being imaginative about assignments, and how likely students were to recommend her as an instructor."
Freakonomics had another post on tattoo statistics, which you can read here.
