These knuckle tattoos can be found touring the world on a guy called Spud. He is a tour manager and sound guy for bands including Terror, American Headcharge, BloodSimple, and God Forbid. His next tour will be with Bury Your Dead.
Here is what he says about his knuckle tattoo:

It says “VACATION” cause my life is a vacation. When I work I tour and do sound and when I’m home I do nothing.

If you want to find where his vacation will take him next check the myspace.


This here is Derek. I met him a few years ago at the Star of Texas Tattoo Art Revival. He makes these amazing Elvis busts with a twist. For example, “Hellvis” is an Elvis with horns and painted red. “El Fez” with a fez of course.My favorite however is “Elvis Presently” which you should definately check out. You can find all these and more at his website: Suffering from Elvis Disease. He also does Halloween themed Virgin Marys.

Like I said, just awesome stuff.

Oh, and the story behind his knuckles? He has narcolepsy.


I got tipped off to Corey by a friend of mine at the Skatepark of Austin. I tracked him down on myspace, and asked if I could post the picture and get his story. I’m just going to post his response verbatim:

“heres my tat.. heres my story”
Oh well I’m the type of guy who will never settle down,
Where pretty girls are well you know that I’m around
I kiss ’em and I love ’em cause to me they’re all the same
I hug ’em and I squeeze ’em they don’t even know my name
They call me the wanderer , yeah I’m a wanderer,
I go around around around around

Well there’s Moe on my left and Mary on my right,
And Janie is the girl well that I’ll be with tonight,
And when she ask me which one I love the best,
I tear open my shirt and I show Rosie on my chest,
‘Cause I’m a wanderer, yeah I’m a wanderer
I roam around around around around hmmm

Well I roam from town to town, I go through life without a care,
And I’m as happy as a clown,
With my two fists of iron, but I’m goin’ nowhere.

Yeah I’m the type of guy that likes to roam around
I’m never in one place I roam from town to town
And when I find myself fallin’ for some girl
I hop right in that car of mine, I drive around the world
And I’m a wanderer, yeah I’m a wanderer
I roam around around around around hmmm

Cause I’m a wanderer, yeah a wanderer
I roam around around around around
