Name: Sydney Schaedel

Year: Freshman

Major: Communications and/or English

Location: Left forearm

Tattoo: Mandalas in Hinduism and Buddhism are maps of the universe. Although Sydney is neither Hindu nor Buddhist, she liked both the symbolism of the mandala and how it looked. She got it in May of 2013, before arriving at Penn.

Parent approved?: She talked it over with her parents before and they made it clear that since she was 18, it was her body and she could do what she wanted with it.
