Hello. My name is Caidyn. I’m a 19 year old recovering alcoholic from Washington. I got these knuckle tattoo’s in January of this year and I just recently got them touched up because they had faded quite a lot.I’ve wanted knuckle tattoos since I was around 14 and had a lot of ideas of what I wanted to get, but wanted to make sure that I did not get something that someone else already had. (Which is really hard and close to impossible to do when it comes to tattoos)I decided to get “Born Poet” for the fact that when I was 15, I tried writing poetry just to mess around and try something new and found that I had a natural talent for it and everyone I showed my work to, loved it and gave me uplifting comments for my writing ability.These knuckle tattoos inspire me to remain in my writing and remind me how much I need to keep writing in my life. Especially in recovery because I struggle with not opening up with people no matter how close I am to them. So writing gives me an escape I need and keeps me from remaining in my addiction.I LOVE MY KNUCKLES!
Tony Landry sends us these wise words:
When I was in jail you see people coming in and leaving almost every day. After months just sitting and waiting for a court date you start to ask yourself, “When am I going to be free?”. I asked a guard that one day, he told me this, “You are only born free.” There it was, the words that have stuck with me forever. I’m from New Orleans, La, but I got these in Mission Beach, Ca near where I was detained. The “R” in “BORN” is blown out, but noone notices it. Name’s Tony. Remember these words.
