tattooed librarians, and others, a book on skin

The Ineradicable Stain seems like a great art project for a librarian to be involved in.

Each participant must agree to have one word of the story tattooed upon his or her body. The text will be published nowhere else, and the author will not permit it to be summarized, quoted, described, set to music, or adapted for film, theater, television or any other medium. The full text will be known only to participants, who may, but need not choose to establish communication with one another.
