CATS MEOW

Leesa G. sends us these lovely … knuckles and her story:

My knuckles were done by Joe Reno at Shogun Tattoo in Pasadena, CA.

There were a few reason’s I chose “Cat’s Meow”:
1. My husband’s knuckles say “Real Gone” so I wanted a phrase that was also kind of beatnick slang.
2. I work with animals for a living.
3. I wanted something that was really positive and upbeat.  I believe we can draw either negative or positive experiences and energies to us, and I prefer to give and get positive energy.

I’m the lead singer for a SoCal punk band called The Creamers.  The band likes my tattoo and the uhm, “boob pic” so much that we’re calling our 2012 release “Cat’s Meow” and putting this pic on the cover.

absorber

Alahna Cruz sends us these knuckles and the story behind ’em:

White ink – hence the b&w. ‘absorber’. In the last 3 years the 3 most important people in my life told me that I was born broken and with holes in me that I couldn’t fix. Also in the last 3 years, I have gotten out of a rocky relationship, got disowned by a good portion of my life & have learned how to support myself & stay healthy and responsible. This is a reminder to myself that I will find what I’m looking for & that I only need myself (and the big guy).

LIVE DRAW

Jessie sends us these knuckle tattoos and the story behind them:

I’m a Sequential Artist/Illustrator attending SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). I got knuckles tattooed as inspiration to keep myself drawing. Which word is on which hand was panned as well because I’m left handed so “draw” is on the left hand..heh heh, so punny. Literally got them done two days ago and everyone keeps fist pumping me ’cause no one can tell they’re new, it sucks, but they are so awesome people just can’t help it.

LIEBLING

Hi there, I’m Purple from Tulsa, Oklahoma and this is my 9th tattoo. It says ‘LIEBLING’ which is an older German word for ‘DARLING’. I chose it because of my love for the German language and also because it’s a word that isn’t really used very often anymore. It reminds me that although I would love to be someone’s ‘darling’  love is overrated and it can become as obsolete as the word liebling itsself.
