You might think that tattoos aren’t particularly edifying, but this slideshow of tattoos that teach will prove you wrong. From tattoos of literary tomes to inked mathematical equations and anatomy lessons, these tattoos that teach are a great way to ingrain a lesson in your mind forever.

Implications - Tattoos are no longer the social taboo they once were, and mainstream pop culture has adopted tattoos as a method of self-expression.

Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by infusing these unusual instructional tattoos into their ad campaigns.
