Savannah Watson sends us this set of knuckles and the story behind them:
i’ve been an avid, nay, OBSESSED reader since my mother taught me at the age of 4. by the time i was in 3rd grade, i was reading at a high-school level, and by the time i was in 6th grade, i was reading at an undergraduate level. reading is my life, i cant think of anything or anyway i’d rather spend my time. out of all my tattoos, my knuckles are hands down (no pun intended), by far and away, my favorite. i also LOVE the fact that i have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t like them, including people who don’t like tattoos at all.
interesting side note, and i hadn’t even realized this until 2 days after i got them, if i hold my hands the other way, they read “readjust”… and as a stress-filled person, i’m constantly needing to readjust my perspective.
I met Mitchel in Oklahoma City this last weekend. He turned me on to an abandoned church that I explored with camera in hand.
He said that he used to just have PUNX on his right hand, but later changed it to LOVE with a safety pin. Which is even more punk rock if you ask me.
I met Benny at the Blue Note in Oklahoma City on Christmas Day. He said that he is a punk, but never bought into chaos and anarchy. RIOT stands for Righteous Invasion of Truth and he believes in order, truth and justice.

Knuckle Tats done by Todd Lamere @ Body Art Plattsburgh, http://www.tattoovermont.com/
I was always afraid of getting a tattoo until the first one on my back, and have got 8 since (including my knuckles). I’m always doing stupid things, forgetting the littlest of things, and saying even GOOFIER things. So, when I was 17 I thought, “I should get GOOFBALL, just to be a dumbass”. I waited until my 22nd birthday in January 2011 and just… did it! Every time I see someone that knows me well enough, they say, “What do your knucks say?” and I show them and they ALWAYS say, “That’s so you” or “Only you”. So I think it’s pretty damn fitting :)
