KERA

Greg M. sends these knuckles and the following story:

This is my knuckle tattoo of my wife’s name, Kera.  She is the greatest girl I’ve met, and will ever meet.  I chose to get her name on my knuckles because I wanted it somewhere that could never be hidden, just like my love for her.

LIVE FREE

Chris M. sends us these knuckles:

Hey guys!

Just got LIVE FREE on my knuckles a couple days ago! I struggled for years  and still am struggling as I live day to day minute by minute! I was a prisoner of my own making and suffered for a long time! I didn’t know was freedom was till I discovered a new way of living that I have to work in my everyday so I dont return to a hopeless state of mind! I was always told to be where my hand are and now everyday I look at them it reminds me to be free of self! That’s my story!

BALLS DEEP

so, i got this done about 3 and a half years ago. i worked at aebn.net (porn) and one of the owners who is a brother in my M.C. decided one night, drunk as hell, to get crazy ink. we went to our buddies shop. he got “RODEO” on the side of his hand for the reverse stroke, (true porn king) and i decided on “BALLS DEEP” because it fit on my knucks. ladies love it and when they ask what it means i simply say, “that’s how i roll” I actually really dig it, although when the children in my life asks what it means i just say it was a college football thing.(never went to college lol) looked around the web haven’t seen it so here you go.
           Thanks for letting me share,

NO REGRET

Debra I. sends us this story:

This is my friend Tony (on the left) and myself. We both had this tattoo when we met. Never had either of us met another person with a knuckle tattoo in this fashion, but to have the same words? We knew immediately that we would be close friends, and have remained so since the day we met.
The odd thing? We are both in recovery, and the tattoo symbolized the same thing for both of us. To never regret where we came from, but to always look forward to who we can become.

DUST WIND – DUDE

I’ve had plenty of awesome knuckle tattoo ideas over the years. Then one day I was listening to Dust in the Wind by Kansas, which got me thinking about the Socrates scene in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.

I realized DUST and WIND would make excellent knuckle tattoos! Representing the Earth and the sky. Life and Death. Good and Evil. Yin and Yang. Opposites. All encompassing.  As well as a fantastic classic rock ballad.. AND a totally excellent, important, classic movie to me, from my youth.. if only i had one more hand to add DUDE to the mix… OH! How bout just moving down a segment and split it in half! why not add some hourglasses, too?!

and VOILA! the birth of the most awesome knuckle tattoos in history! Kansas, Bill & Ted, and Socrates! All in one! Can’t beat it! i love em! They were done by the lovely and super talented Tasha Rubinow, at the shop I work at Inborn Tattoo, in NYC.

(Side note: We listened to “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas on repeat the whole time we were doing the tattoo. The play count in the end was 46. It never got old. and it never will!)

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.”
