The exhibition features photographs of students and their tattoos by visual artist Z. Koppisch.

Koppisch, an FAU alumna, is a photographer and senior designer at the Wimberly Library. Students from the Jupiter campus are invited to add their ink to the archive by being photographed and/or videotaped at the reception.
