Hector sends us these knuckles and his story:

Hey Nathan, im 28, married, and my daughter just turned 2.  We live in Buffalo NY. The piece was done by Otis Arterberry, from American Skin Art, in Tonawanda NY.

The reason I had it done, is because i went through something, which was a turning point in my life.  I couldve let the issue consume me and I would’ve lost my family.  Or what i did, man up and decide I was in control and nothing else was.

SEJA VOCÊ

My name is Antonia Ciminera. I’m 23 years old from Los Angeles, California. My knuckles say ” Seja Você ” which is Portuguese for “Be You” . I got this tattoo because I used to worry a lot about what others would think of me or how they would judge me and I came to realize that no matter what I will always just be me and I’m okay with that not being accepted by everyone, and I encourage other people to be who they are.

GOLDFISH

Jeanine sends us her knuckle tattoos:

I got these done almost 4 years ago by Zack Woods at The Missing Piece in Spokane, WA. The “o” is a fish bowl and the “F” is a fishing hook. This tattoo has a lot of meanings for me. For the most part it is a comic book referance and this is what I tell people. Whenever I think of Lenore the cute little dead girl saying “fishies go pook pook pook” I think of goldfish. But I am also a fish out of water. This has more than one meaning for me. I have always been an oddball and as a female with tons of tattoo work I get a ton of odd looks. I also love to swim. I am an Aquarius… so it all just fits me perfectly. Not to mention I love the goldfish snack food crackers. White cheddar for the win baby. ~ J
