Teacher's bet with students ends with tattoo of vice-principal slaying a dragon.

Motivating students isn't always easy, but Stanley Richards, a teacher at San Francisco's City Arts and Technology High School, has found a way that will stick with him forever.

He promised students he'd get a tattoo of the schools vice principal if they could raise the school's score on the California Academic Performance Index by 50 points.

The school was expected to raise the score by seven points at the time.

"I was 99 percent sure that it wouldn't happen" Richards laughs.

He was wrong.

He's now sporting a rather large tattoo of vice principal Paul Koh on his calf.

In the portrait Koh is dressed in samurai gear, slaying a dragon that represents standardized tests.
