These puzzlers come to us on the hands of RayRay. Story below:
I had been waiting for the perfect knuckle tattoo for years, and when Martha Stewart was (wrongly!!) sent to prison in ’04, i was reading an article about it that gave her Federal Prisoner Number. Being a huge fan i instantly realized that a gangstyle tribute to her was perfect. My buddy actually opened up his shop in the middle of the night to do it. I still think it’s as funny as hell but i do have to explain it a lot, and i get a lot of blank stares. The color was custom mixed to match one of her paint chips from K-Mart: “Hosta Green”.
This hand comes to us from Gary T. He has this to say:
I decided to finally make the plunge and get my right Knuckles tattoo’d-
I always wanted to get “SEEK” – as in Seek & Do Gods Will.
I am a recovering Alcoholic & Drug addict and seeing it on a daily basis helps remind me who is really in control.
Sarah convinced her boyfriend to send these in. The story is as follows:
Spyder got his knuckles done in Saint Louis, MO about a year ago after being a bouncer at various bars and clubs in Boston and in Los Angeles throughout the years. I found it only appropriate to set the shot up with the king of beers.
These knuckle tattoos are on the hands of Pappy in Milacan, MN:
Basically is what it means is “Trying to define my values as opposed to those recognized by the society of our world.” Otherwise known as ANTI-SOCIAL but I could not fit that many letters on my knuckles. It really just means I fucking hate people!!!!!

These are the knuckles of Ben Tupper, Hereford UK. His story is a timely one:
Basically I woke up this morning (07/7/07) and like you do sometimes, I was thinking about death. I began to think about how finite life really is and how I need to be more spontaneous. So, I went to see my friend in town and got the hour glass and coffin, kind of to remind me that times ticking away. Plus I want to move work on to my hands gradually.
