Baelee Black sends us these little rockers and her story:
i have always loved knuckle tattoos because they usually describe a person to the soul core.For years i wanted knuckle tattoos but i didn’t feel hard enough or ruff enough or sad enough……..lost soul……fuck yall…….sour mash(dead road dog named after a whiskey)……mama tried.None of these things were even close to describing me but still i thought they were so darkly romantic and beautifully done with faded colors and trashy fonts.I am a housewife of 11 years with 2 kids and never in one place more than 2 yrs.I have had many types of jobs and deal with this strange world daily but the one thing i’m awesome at is making a nice home for my kids and being a damn good wife whether in a mansion or motel room…i am a HOME MAKR and am proud to wear it on my fist!
Dennis Thomas is a photographer and writer hailing of Austin, Texas. I ran into him at the Occupy Austin rally on October 6th. I’ve known Dennis forever but this is the first time I got a good shot of his knuckles. He is busy shooting shows and writing the Nikon Digital Field Guides.
I met Nikki while grabbing a bite at Home Slice Pizza here in Austin. She is a photo editor at Texas Monthly. Nikki didn’t want to get the standard GOOD and EVIL, so she got the equivalent sentiments for her. Her second set are all good luck and bad luck symbols. She said that the dots above her nails hurt the worst.
My name is Dave and I live in LA where tattoos are common. I have been wanting to do my knuckles for twenty years, but I didn’t want ink on my knuckles that looked like everyone else. I had a list of twenty different 4x4s for consideration before I decided on cursive LONE WOLF. I’ve always been a loner and outcast from society so this represents the core of my soul, plus I can relate to the wolf for traits in my personality.

These were done by Laura Kennedy at Timeless Tattoo in sunny Scotland!
My reason for “memories” is simple, they’re something you’ll always have, be it good or bad, and I guess they remind me of my childhood when I look at them :)
