Tattoos, some book-themed, offered in support of library


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – More than three dozen people in Lawrence got their kicks from a different kind of ink at the town’s public library this week.

In celebration of National Library Week, the Lawrence Public Library on Tuesday hosted “Get Inked for the Library,” featuring tattoo artists Jarod and Holly Hackney.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that 40 people signed up to get a permanent tattoo on an arm or a leg. They chose from eight different tattoos designed by the Hackneys, including some that were book-related. Each paid $100, which was donated to the Lawrence Public Library Foundation.
