Every day, we watch community members come and go. Walking or biking by. Browsing the bookshelves. Meeting over coffee with old friends or new business partners. Working hard on a project in the studio or a study room. Relaxing in a comfy chair. Once in a while we catch a glimpse into an individual's inner world from a tattoo on a shoulder, ankle, or arm and we wonder how and why and what and who.

This fall, we want to hear the stories behind images you carry on your body. After all, what is a library if not a place of story sharing? Perhaps you have overcome great adversity, or the symbols on your body are part of long tradition of tattooing, or perhaps you just really like donuts. Whether your tattoo stories are raw, real, funny, or sweet, we think they’re worth hearing.
