The Fresno County Public Library is looking for Afghanistan and Iraq War veterans with military-themed tattoos for a new online exhibit.

The Central Branch Library at 2420 Mariposa St. will host an event June 26 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for anyone interested in participating.

Veterans will have their tattoos professionally photographed and displayed next to a brief story behind the tattoo on the library's website. The exhibit, entitled "War Ink," will launch on Veteran's Day.
