These are the knuckles of Chism, this is what he has to say about ’em:

I got this tattoo because, through hard times and life’s lessons I have learned to just live life and enjoy every moment of it. Life is to short. So LIVE LIFE !!!!!


Belinda sends us these knuckles:

I chose FREE WILL because I love the song by RUSH and the lyrics:

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;
I will choose a path that’s clear
I will choose freewill.

I have “motivate” because it’s my job!  As a tattooer and body piercer we have set up our shop (Captain Tattoo and Body Piercing, Lancaster, PA) as a teaching studio where clients of all kinds can be inspired, and we can all learn and progress as a team.  Sometimes you need a little extra push to keep going.

My lower knuckles, still in progress – are a tribute to love, my favorite band, the eye that sees all when I flip people off, and the teeth i’ve lost..


A lot of notes from across the ocean. Today we have Wiggy from England:

Hi my name is wiggy, i’m from eastbourne in england. I’ve wanted my knuckles done ever since i first started getting tattooed, but untill recently didnt have the guts to do so. Now i have a good collection and im quite covered  i thought the time was right. After changing my mind several times i finally decided to get LIVE FREE. This is because i like the meaning behind it. I think by being heavily tattooed you are living free and expressing your views through body art.


These knuckles come all the way from Portugal with the following story:

Hey my name is Lawrence, and I´m a body piercer/mod from Lisbon (Europe’s Black Hole) where every day thousands of children’s get killed from guns related crimes, coz its a hell right here.

The reason of my knuckles tattoo is very obvious coz my life sucks! I work everyday, from 9 a.m to 9 p.m and I´m a student by night, and I live with my parents. Oh yeah did I mention that I broke my shoulder at work with 10 days left to my vacations and I have done 4 sacrifications jobs with a broken shoulder and no treatment except alcohol? I think when other body mods break their shoulders they just cancel their books and just go home. Like you can see i’m a really thug! Btw, this is all true, except the part of the thousands of children´s getting killed everyday :(
