I met Angie at The Grackle, and her knuckle tattoos read BROKEN, but I didn’t see anything wrong with her. When I asked her about her knuckle tattoos, she told me that she was getting them lazered off. She said that she was drunk with a friend and just picked a word.
I’m going to be visiting the NYC Tattoo Convention May 13-15th!
I will taking pictures and collecting stories for a magazine/book for publication after the convention. Catch up to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or twitter @knuckle_tattoos and make sure I get a picture of your knuckles. Even if you have submitted your knuckles to the site before, I’d like to meet you and take a picture in person. Then we can high-five and get drinks! It is going to be awesome!
See you there!
Here’s a set of knuckles from a derby girl, Miss Dollface DeVille:
I’ve wanted my knuckles done for such a long time. I work in a tattoo shop in Northern Alberta, Canada and one day I spontaneously decided to offer up my hands to one of the artists.
I’m a 26 year old mom of 2.
Dollface DeVille is my roller derby name. If you don’t know much about derby, all skaters develop an alter ego or alias that they go by. Most of my skater friends know me as Dollface and rarely call me by my actual name which is Jen, by the way.
After 4 years of being known as “dollface” I figured it was time to make it eternally so.
I love my newest and most visible tattoo and I’ve gained some extra street cred from my derby girls!
