Greeting new visitors!

Hello to all the new folk from BoingBoing and Fark!

I usually update Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. So come back, there’s always more knuckle tattoos to be found. Of course we also have an rss feed for easy subscription or if you want we’ll deliver knuckles directly via email with the handy form on the left there.

Thanks for dropping by!

100 Sets of Knuckles!

Hey true believers!

I posted the 100th set of knuckles last week. I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve put together a little something to celebrate:

Get your own knuckles at the knuckle tattoo gun.

It is a virtual knuckle tattoo gun, just type in what you want on your knuckles and have them delivered piping hot and ready to post.Thanks to everyone who has helped me reach this goal, but especially all the great people who have sent in their knuckles for the site. When I started the project I was completely fascinated by the idea of knuckle tattoos. The more I’ve talked to the people behind them, the more I’ve come to realize that the interesting part is the people behind the knuckles. I’ve got a ton more stories in the wings, and I will be posting as I have time.

Hey y’all…

Sorry for the lack of updates in the last week or so. I just moved in with my lady friend, and I’m still working on finding my computer and a wall plug. It will be a bit longer before I’m rocking the site again. But rest assured I’ve got some good ones on the way. Thanks to everyone who is sending in your pictures and stories, the will be up as I get the time together.



Great Birthday Present!

Hey y’all, just got a mention on the bmezine’s modblog! Hits are going off the chart! I know that it has nothing to do with it being my birthday, but I’m going to bask in it anyways. I feel like Steve Martin in The Jerk when he gets his name in the phone book.

I’m also going to take this moment to put a call out for submissions. This site runs on reader submissions and the knuckle tattoos that I can find. So, please, if you have knuckle tattoos, or know someone who does, or even just see some on someone, please send me a picture or encourage them to send me a picture. I can be reached here at or on MySpace at

Send me your knuckles today and it’ll be like I’m getting that many more birthday presents!

Thanks for playing along,


I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.
