Inked Up Librarians


Mental Floss compiles tattooed librarians. As expected, much of the skin art is literary themed, but that is not to say that classic skull and bones motifs don’t make an appearance.

Each tattoo’s origin is explained in detail and shed light on projects such as Brand Yourself A Librarian, which aims to unite prideful librarians. Others depict superhero librarians, such as a librarian who moonlights as a Wonderwoman style crime fighter. Regardless of design, each piece of ink champions a passion for reading.
