Jim Madden sends us these hands:
I know this is a cliche knuckle tattoo, but my story behind it is my uncle and one of my best friends, who was a huge influence on everything i do today, had this exact tattoo on his knuckles, and he ended up committing suicide, so its kind of ironic…this is my way of remembering him, among others
This hand was sent in by Sofija, with a simple statement of intent:
My story is simple, I am a poet and what better to put on my knuckles than who I am?
I’ve yet to get anything on the left hand but plan on adding a couple more things to the right to adorn it some more.
Dan from Ontario thinks these speak for themselves. They were done at Memphis Underground, Chatham Ontario, Canada.
Samantha P. sends up her knuckles. She’s ready to rock, y’all.
UPDATE: She sent us this story:
I chose Let’s Rock because Im a total rager, kidding well no not really. I’m a musician and I love to rock thats about it.
Mikko Hakulinen sends us these knuckles.
I’ll just let Nikki tell the story:
These tats hail from the hands of Nikki in Roanoke, VA. They read “FIJN DAME,” which means “Fine Lady” or “Beautiful Lady” in Dutch. This is not a vain statement being that the words describe my soul and not the exterior.
Pjotr K. of Finland sends us the story of his knuckles:
The translation of “dies Irae” is “day of wrath“.
It’s the first words of an 13th century latin hymn that desrcribes the judgement day.
I’ve always found the “dies irae”-poem inspirational and fascinating.
And i think that it makes a powerful tattoo with meaning in it.
The picture is taken just few minutes after it was made and the red parts of it are’nt really red, they’re just swollen.
Now i’ve had it for something like a year and a half and it needs some re-colouring and little fixing.
