Welcome to a librarian's online musings on libraries, literature and information media.

Children’s Literature Tattoos

Leave a comment

Book TattooWithin my school environment, it is quietly implied that body art, or tattoos, are to be covered up and not visible to our school community…all part of setting a good example for our children.  Many staff and faculty do this; a few do not.  One can argue infringement of personal freedoms, current fashion, or, on the flip side, appropriateness when in a role model situation for young developing minds.

The notion of tattoos and,  by their sheer application, the needles in which tattoos are adhered to the skin,  send me into squeamish convolutions of terror (feel free to group dental check ups in this category).  Recent internet trolling has given me further fodder for my blog…children’s literature tattoos…only for librarians? Book lovers? Who is to say if this skin art has been photographed in a library or not.

All rumblings aside, the selection of the images does warrant this entry.

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to community. I love books, reading to my son,properly placed apostrophes,canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
