BONA NOX!

Hey,
My name is Mick Bell and I live in Grimsby, UK. I have hours and hours of tatts but I always wanted something on my knuckles but could never decide what!  I’ve always been intrigued by Latin so I decided to have something Latin (that would be 8 letters) and I came across the “Bona nox” its Latin for “Good Night”. I’m a bouncer on a weekend I thought it would go well. I’ve never seen it on anyone especially on knuckles, so I had it done.  Hope it inspires others. Peace.

BONA FIDE

I’ve wanted knuckle ink for a long time and decided on the Latin words, “BONA FIDE.” Most of us think of this as meaning, “the real deal,” or, “true to the game.” The Latin translation is, “in good faith.” I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out!!
