      I once knew a librarian who could have qualified for that tattoo. She seemed determined to break the stereotype of the shy, receding type.

      Cute shot.

      At first I was just so bowled over at how badass this is. Then I noticed the books are quarter leather with raised bands over marbled boards. That is twice as badass as I thought it was on first glance.

      Holy smoke! That is a great tattoo. Has it mellowed with age?

      It's only about four months old -- it's a little less vivid after healing, but only a little. I need to have the skull outline touched up a bit and will probably thicken the glasses outline just slightly to make it stand out.
