I had been wanting to get something on my knuckles for some time now, but never really knew what to get. So I began thinking of things I would want. I also knew I wanted to get a Hopeless Romantic tattoo on me somewhere, because that is pretty much me in a nutshell. Honestly I am pretty sure The Notebook is my favorite movie…. I was so excited when I realize that it would fit perfectly on my knuckles, So I found the font I wanted and put a skull with a bow in with the Hopeless and a heart with crossbones in with the romantic. Kinda ties it all in together and if you just look at that finger, I like to think it says toxic love….
Alan Mandic sends us these knuckles with the following story:
I recently and finally got my knuckles tattooed. I have been wanting them for a year now, and finally settled on what I wanted about 6 months ago. I had them done at Tattoo Mark’s Studio I in Souderton PA, by Frankie G. and Lowercase J (From Studio II). I figured if I was getting both hands done, why not at the sametime? Whenever anyone asks what hurt the worst, I can’t say. When one hand was being hurt so was the other, so I couldn’t focus on it, ha.
I got Fear Hope because I often find myself stuck in the same old rut in life. It means that you shouldn’t sit around hoping things will happen, you have to go out and make them happen. So Fear Hope. I have plans to add on already, maybe a ME under FEAR just for fun.
I got my knuckles done at Elite Piercing and Tattoo Shop in Modesto, CA. Mind Food to me encompasses my passion: gaining knowledge. I chose the phrase and location because I wanted to make a bold “in your face no looking back” statement that sums me up. I’m a psychology major going on to medical school, and “mind” represents not just the brain as an organ, but the abstract concepts of the mind–faith, knowledge, behavior, morality, philoshophy, etc. One shoud always be gaining knowledge; always be questionning everything around you, reflecting inward and reading as much as possible to understand the world.
