Rhode Island librarians are showing off their ink, and it’s not in their books but on their skin.

The Tattooed Librarians of the Ocean State have become online stars after releasing a 2014 calendar that features 12 librarians and library workers and their unexpected tattoos.

“Libraries are unique, as they simultaneously foster the preservation of histories and traditions, while fighting censorship and fostering cutting-edge learning environments,” the Rhode Island Library Association said on its website. “Likewise, tattoos can also represent the preservation of history and resistance to the norm.”

The calendars cost $12 at Rhode Island libraries  and $15 if shipped. All proceeds benefit the Rhode Island Library Association.
