Tricia loves to read, her knuckles tell me so:
When I was kid I actually got in trouble for reading too much. One time when my mother grounded me, instead of taking away my toys, she took my books. To this day, I’m rarely without some form of reading material on my person. I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate to have emblazoned across my knuckles for the whole world to see. I love the irony of something so badass being so incredibly nerdy. They still need to be touched up but the sketchy typewriter print is my homage to all the hard work that had to be put in to manually type a manuscript in the past.
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!
Amy sends us these thoughtful knuckles along with this story:
. . .everyone’s always calling me the ‘sexy school teacher’ or ‘sexy librarian’ . . .soooo, boom, read my knucks bitches!! tee hee, . . . here are a few of the mens’ reactions thus far . . . “The dichotomy between the stereotype of a bookworm and hardcore knuck tattoos is utterly delicious” and “I am a total bibliophile. Throw the book at me and treat me rough you bad bookish girl!” and then there’s “Quite possibly the sexiest tattoo I’ve ever seen. Brilliantly conceived and beautifully implemented. (And the fact that it can say BOO for halloween with the aid of a bandage is icing on the cake)” wow, simma down boys. . . and then on the other end of the spectrum there’s the women who are inviting me to join book clubs. . . . i find all of this utterly amusing. . . . (thanks Branden for the kick ass font you drew up for me and i love love love the little white dot/accents . . . it makes me feel like i have little encyclopedias on my digits =) you can find him at 1LifeTattoo, brainerd, mn)
