Here is a set from Maikel Leenders:
the story behind it that here it kinda controversial to have tattoo’s on knuckles our other visable places so that’s why i ask them whith my tattoo sick boy? our not?
and also cuz im an borderliner u know the phychosomatic diseace so it means two things to me
i embrace who i am and ask people to think about all their pre-judgements
Rich S. sends us these knuckles:
I got this tattoo after serving a year in jail for drunk driving. I got hard luck because of the situation and the circumstances pertain to my incarceration. Life’s a bitch and I have HARD LUCK.
I had just got out of jail and it was the first time i had drank in a few months so it just seemed appropiate. Ya know i drove down the wrong road at the wrong time. I have always said too that i have had hard luck. I always seem to learn the hard way so i guess it just fit for me.
These are the knuckle tattoos of Bob Sleg, a FleshTransfixer who owns a shop in Lille, France called COLD FLESH, THE BODY PIERCING CRYPT in Lille (FR).
This FUCK/LOVE tattooed in December Y2K by WILL TATTOO from Angoulême, FRANCE (EU), represents a lot to me.
First of all, it says all together FUCK LOVE, ‘koz ‘am a bloody heart-sensitive Dude and I wanted to “protect” myself against other heartbreaking love stories…
Second, the LOVE one is on my left hand, the one of the heart. And the FUCK one his on the right hand which represents the military salute and the fighting fist to me.
Third, when I reverse my hands (left/right) or put’em in front of me, it says LOVE FUCK, ‘koz Hell yeah ‘am heart-sensitive but I still luv’ action !
Fourth, I always had in memories the Robert Mitchum’s LOVE/HATE “tattoo” I saw in The Night Of The Hunter when I woz a child…
There’s sum’ other meanings for my knukles’tattoo to me, like FUCK is my favorite word in the world; bu’ I keep’em for my LOVErz..!

Doll Face was Inked on by Mr Rossi. I chose doll face as although it’s not completely original lots of my friends/family liken my face to a china dolly – its a term of endearment and I want to be able to always look down at my hands and remember when I was a Doll face, looks fade people change, i will age but hopefully i will always remember everyone i was special too that ever called me doll face when i look at my knuckles.
These beauties are on the hands of Victoria and here is her story:
This was my first tattoo and i recieved it when i was in traning for the Army in South Carolina from a tattoo parlor called 5 Points.
Because technically were not supposed to have tattoos on our hands i got a white ink tattoo.
The message tattooed is “GOLD LION” which is the title of a song by the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
This picture was taken about 15 minuets after i recieved the tattoo, since then it got infected and scared over. Some of the lettering is un readable, but i love it. Its true what everyone says, once you get one tattoo your gonna want more. Now i cant stop getting more tattoos.
