I’ve been talking with Finny for ages now and I finally got it together to post his knuckles. Here they are along with the stories behind them:
This one goes out to my pals in the Austin Facial Hair Club. Although I can not grow a beard of my own, it is important to support those who can. Lauren Ray of Pensacola, FL sends us these knuckle tattoos:
i got this tattoo because well, i LOVE beards. Everyone knows it, so i decided to truly show how much i do by getting it tattooed on my knuckles. The thumbs were a last minute idea and i love them. Tattoo courtesy of 3 Saints Tattoos, Pensacola, FL.
These knuckles come all the way from Natalia in Costa Rica. I don’t know what she is saying, but I’m pretty sure it is awesome:
my name is natalia, from costa rica! ;) y me tatué stay calm, porque soy impaciente, estresada y me altero por todo, aun teniendolo tatuado, i just cant stay calm ;) pero voy progresando hahahaha….
oh and a diamond. made my alejandro cole, at stattoos tattoo, san pedro, costa rica ♥
UPDATE: Since several people ponited me towards google translate, I’ve gone ahead and added the rough English translation:
my name is natalia, from Costa Rica! ;) Tatu and I stay calm, because I am anxious, stressed and altered by me throughout, even keeping a tattoo, i just cannot stay calm;) hahahaha … but I make progress.
oh and a diamond. made by alejandro cole, at stattoos tattoo, San Pedro, Costa Rica ♥

These knuckles come courtesy of Tiina K. of Finland. Here is her story:
I had dreamed about knuckletattoos for quite long, but I had so many options and didn’t really know which one to choose. Suddendly my depression got a bit worse and I went through a difficult process with getting to know myself. I’ve always been a social and loud girl, and talked alot. Yet I noticed a change in me, I had become very shy. I took words “Live loud” to remind me of being proud and brave, and leaving behind that quiet mouse I was. I chose this font cos I’m a huge fan of oldschool tattoos and especially sailor tattoos. That’s why I chose anchors for my thumbs also.
