Tattooed Librarians

The Texas Library Association is selling a 2010 calendar called "The Tattooed Ladies of TLA." Twenty-one librarians show off their tats over 18 months. The calendar is a fundraiser to assist libraries that are still recovering from damage caused by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
"It was just a fun thing to do," said Gretchen Hoffmann, 42, who turned up the heat as Miss August 2010 by posing on a row boat, a purple boa strategically draped to highlight the starfish tattoo on her upper back. "I like the idea that the calendars are stereotype-busters. You don't usually see [librarians] as tattooed and sexy. We're not the little old ladies who walk around with buns."

I have three tattoos, two in highly visible spots. People are often surprised to hear I am a librarian.

Eventually, I hope to have a LOT more ink.

I always think of librarians as sexy, sadly Ive yet to meet a one that lives up to the fantasy.
