Elephant

Happy Friday y’all! These knuckles are awesome. Here is the note that came with them:

The idea for this tattoo started out as a joke.  I was with some friends at an all-night diner, and we were discussing 8-letter words that would make no sense tattooed on someone’s knuckles. My friend said ‘elephant’ and since I really like elephants for no reason, I decided that would be it.  My tattoo artist asked me why I was getting the word elephant tattooed on my knuckles, and I just said “Because I never forget.”  So that’s why.

XMAS PAST

XMAS PAST

Dean sends us these ghostly apparitions with the following story:

i got these done by a guy called rossi who travels the world tattooing.

i got ‘xmas past’ as my hometown in rochester, england where charles dickens lived. i always loved his books especially a christmas carol. so i decided to go for xmas past in tribute as the ghost of christmas past is one of the spirits that visits scrooge. i always wanted my knuckles done and wanted something unique.

PEEK A BOO

PEEK A BOO

These knuckles come all the way from Melbourne (Florida):

My name is Gavin and I work at Th-Inker Tattoo in Melbourne, Florida. Kevin comes down from Jersey a couple times a year and has marathon tattoo sessions. We decided to tattoo his knuckles on a whim last time he was here. Kevin says he frequently gets into fist fights so we thought “PEEK-A-BOO” would be funny.

2FAR GONE

2 FAR GONE

Shaun P. sent these in a long time ago, I am just getting them up now… Here is the story:

I been through some crazy stuff. And done plenty of ignorant shit. I moved past a very unproductive and rough time in my life to pursue my art and tattooing full time. So, with that said I’m “2FAR GONE” to ever go back.

I work at “The Laughing Buddha Tattoo And Body Piercing” in Denison Texas. The Tattoos where done freehand by the owner Deveaux Richards.
