Nick at Old Town Tatu in Chicago sends us his knuckles. The were inked by Tony at Old Town. When I asked him why he got them, his answer was:
I am the owner of the studio and as for the got ink ? we use it on t-shirts so I thought it would be a great idea to do my knuckles with it

These come from “doodoo shitpie” (that’s what his email address said anyways):

Kirsten from The Netherlands sends us these tattoos and the following story:
I’m a total bookworm. I spend almost all my free time reading, or browsing for cool books.
And this tattoo is to show I am proud of it, and proud to be myself!
Jim Madden sends us these hands:
I know this is a cliche knuckle tattoo, but my story behind it is my uncle and one of my best friends, who was a huge influence on everything i do today, had this exact tattoo on his knuckles, and he ended up committing suicide, so its kind of ironic…this is my way of remembering him, among others
This hand was sent in by Sofija, with a simple statement of intent:
My story is simple, I am a poet and what better to put on my knuckles than who I am?
I’ve yet to get anything on the left hand but plan on adding a couple more things to the right to adorn it some more.
Dan from Ontario thinks these speak for themselves. They were done at Memphis Underground, Chatham Ontario, Canada.
