Awesome Librarian Tattoos

Nobody knows how to bedeck their body with literary awesomeness like librarians do! Mental_floss has some great photos you have to see in 11 Amazing Librarian Tattoos. Like this one on Becca of the Dewey Decimal number for Harry Potter:

     I also recently learned about Becky Quiroga Curtis from Books & Books in Coral Gables, Florida. She's known for getting famous children's book illustrators to draw their characters on her bod, which she then runs out and has made into permanent tattoos! So, she's literally covered with original works of art from picture book heros!
     Thanks to Teresa Rolfe Kravtin for the heads up on Becky and for use of her image (which she took at the recent SIBA book fair).
