HARD WORK

This is Jonny C. and Sam Riot. They are best friends and welders here in Austin, TX.

Jonny got his knuckles done first and say they are a reminder of what life is for him. His knuckle tattoos were the first tattoos he got and now he is fill his arms on up.

Sam loved the idea of HARD WORK and asked Jonny if he minded getting matching knuckles. Jonny was on board, and now the two are working class heroes until they die.

Sam also got the double decker done with AMERICAN: 

AMERICAN – MMVII

The lettering is simply AMERICAN, and was done earlier today on the middle row of knuckles. I chose this because I’m a former soldier and proud American. The old school style was chosen almost at random, as it’s easy to read and still looks nice.

My first knuckle tattoo was MMVII, the Roman numeral for the year my wife and I got married (2007).
