POTATOES

Rachel Ludwick sends us these knuckle tattoos:

I really dont have a great story behind getting them. I have just always Loved potatoes . I was homeless when i decided to get them and i was eating alot of potatoes becuase they were cheap and easy to get. I get ALOT of strange looks when i show people what my knuckles say. Most people just think its really weird.

RUDE DAME

Hello,

My name is Smashley. I chose the ‘RUDE DAME’ knuckle tatts becasue, you see, I’m not exactly lady like. I drink, smoke, and curse like a f*cking sailor. There’s times where I can be a fiesty one when agitated. All in all, I’m actually sweet little gal that bites hard, when needed. So it can be considered a psyche-out. I’d actually consider it a warning. Teehee.

SPITFIRE

my name is Anya and this is my knuckle tattoo. it’s a little fallen out but that’s because i am a tattoo artist myself and i had to wear gloves while it was healing…
i got “spitfire” because i am a huge Prodigy fan and that’s the name of one of my most favorite songs by them. Also, Spitfire means “a female of a fiery temper” and well, that’s what i am :)

 

STAY GOLD

I’m Gina and my knuckles say “Stay gold”

I love to read and one of my favorite books is the outsiders. In the book there is a poem by Robert Frost which goes as follows;
Nature’s first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
The way it’s described in the book is that “Your gold when your a kid. When your a kid, everythings new. Like dawn, the way you dig sunsets, Ponyboy, that’s gold. Keep it that way, its a good way to be.”
I take it how nothing stays perfect or new forever but even though you will get older still keep your youth. Your spirit doesn’t have to age with your body. I got the tattoo because I’m 20 years old now which means (according to everyone else) that I’m getting older I’ve become an adult. I have a son and I think it’s the perfect time to solidify this statement that even though I’m growing up fast I’ll still be a kid at heart forever and that’s something nobody can take from me. Permanant ink just makes it that much clearer for the rest of the world.

LIVE LOVE

Sarah Sin sends us these knuckle tattoos:

These are my knucks:
LIVE – I believe people should live the life they choose to live without judgement by others – we all have one life to live – our own. ‘Nuff said.
LOVE – Same logic behind LIVE – I don’t believe that anyone has the right to tell me who I can or cannot love – We are all human and should treat one another as such,
LIVE and let LOVE!
