#83 Perceived Competence of Visibly tattooed Women with Elite Powerlifter Dr. Ayngelia "Star" Ara

Though visible tattoos have become more mainstream within the last decade or so, there are still prevailing social-cultural views of tattoos and the individual who wears them.  Seen as deviant, criminalistic, or immoral, many of these perceptions are generational and biased towards little understanding of the tattoed community, especially amongst scholars.

Dr. Ayngelia “Star” Ara, who is a USPC Committee & International ref, an educator, eLearning designer, and technical writer, speaks about her book has been studying just that for the last couple of years. Her book, “The Public Self and the Perceived Competence of Visibly Tattooed Women as Higher Education Administrators” gives a unique perspective to gender debates when discussing the appearance of visible tattoos and higher education women administrators.
