The FDLP tattoo

There was an article in the New York Times a little while ago about a group of hip young librarians in Brooklyn. Mention was made of a "guybrarian" in the group who had a tattoo of the FDLP logo tattooed on his arm where it could peek out from the sleeve of his teeshirt. The govdocs librarian listserv picked up on the mention and ran with it! Messages went back and forth about the possibility of FDLP tattoos, of temporary tattoos and of GODART ( the ALA's gov docs subgroup) doing something. One group did do something. The govdocs people at the U. of Michigan got temporary tattoo paper, made FDLP tattoos and had themselves a little party - a photo is at the bottom of their webpage.
