Hot damn, we’ve got a set of double deckers in store for you today. Nathan W. says:
I have good combination of “hippie” tattoos and “punk” tattoos. I figured you couldnt get any more hippie dippie than free love, and not much more punk than shit head.
Wally sends us these beauties:
Hi, my name is Wally. I live in Vancouver, Washington.

I am yours now, forever.
Squirrel of the ever-excellent Cycling Tattoo Gallery just sent use these beauties. Keep up the good work brother! His story:
Yo my brutha, finally got around to getting my knuckles done. Ride Free is the phrase I choose for my love of bicycles. There is nowhere our 2 wheeled steeds can’t take us. Whether it be though someone’s yard, down some fast single track, many miles of pavement or just down memory lane to our childhood. “Ride Free” mates!
JR sends us these knuckles. They were tattooed at The Basement Ink in Oak Forest by Stacy.
I have LIVE FREE on my knuckles. To me this is a testement to living free, in more ways than one. Most importantly to me it means to not let any one or anything keep you from what you want. Your mind, body and soul are your’s and your’s only. The way you choose to live is up to you. Once I started to get tatted more and more everyone told me about the stigma of never going to find a job, and how it is not appropriate, and all that horse shit. So it was also my F**K off statement to all the haters. I think that tattoos are an amazing form of art work and I see my body as a canvass for and amazing artist. And it is reminder that I want to live free literally as in no JAIL for me. I did a short amount of time and the guards would always say how Ironic it was that my knuckles said LIVE FREE and I just called em douche bags and left it at that.
This great sentiment just came in:
My name is Nikki Lynn and these were done by Mark @ Exotic Ink in Conyers, GA.
The story behind them is 2 years ago when I was at a concert at Six Flags, there was a booth selling merchandise with “free hugs” on it. I bought a hat and t-shirt from them and wore them around the concert along with a few other people. There were tons of people that kept running up to me asking for hugs and it was so exciting. I still have that hat and shirt and occasionally wear them because I love getting hugs! I figured that if someone else was having a bad day, they could always use a hug, too. So I decided to get “free hugs” tattooed on my knuckles as a kind of permanent symbol since I can’t always wear my hat or shirt. :)
Got these knuckles tattoos in from Justin E. this is what he has to say for himeself:
i got this when i was sixteen in a kitchen in kenosha, wisconsin…i sold out straight edge when i was eighteen. i’m always the hit of the party!
These are the knuckle tattoos of “Captain Catastrophy”, the onstage human torch for Belgium’s rock sensation El Guapo Stuntteam. He got them because of the Lynyrd Skynyrd song Free Bird and it’s use in the movie The Devil’s Rejects.
Here is a clip of him doing his thing:
