Jeanine sends us her knuckle tattoos:
I got these done almost 4 years ago by Zack Woods at The Missing Piece in Spokane, WA. The “o” is a fish bowl and the “F” is a fishing hook. This tattoo has a lot of meanings for me. For the most part it is a comic book referance and this is what I tell people. Whenever I think of Lenore the cute little dead girl saying “fishies go pook pook pook” I think of goldfish. But I am also a fish out of water. This has more than one meaning for me. I have always been an oddball and as a female with tons of tattoo work I get a ton of odd looks. I also love to swim. I am an Aquarius… so it all just fits me perfectly. Not to mention I love the goldfish snack food crackers. White cheddar for the win baby. ~ J
Steven G. sends us these knuckles:
Here are my knuckle tats after their first and second sessions. I work a lot with my hands so I’m healing them in sections… My knocks are a two-fold homage to ‘The Outsiders’ as well as a nod to Bring Me the Horizon’s song ‘Diamonds Aren’t Forever’ line “Throw your diamonds in the sky, we’ll stay gold forever”. My knuckles are me, I can never deny myself, and if I stay gold… I might just leave a mark and “live forever”.
Greg sends us these knuckle tattoos and the following story:
my names Greg I grew up in New York and recently moved to california.. I struggled with addiction for 9+ years i got Stay Gold because to me it reminds me to keep it pure for me “natures first green is gold” Keep my life like it was before I turned “the wrong way”
Stay gold, Desmond. Stay gold…
These knuckles come all the way from Denmark from Johni S:
Well i really wanted to tattoo my knuckles since i already have lots of stuff done, it only felt natural to make this step.
I wondered what to get and fell over this quote:
Stay Gold; Not conforming to what society dictates, but in a sense marching to the beat of your own drum.
Which fits perfectly to me, and how i live my life.
Johni Simonsen, 21, Denmark
These beauties are on the hands of Victoria and here is her story:
This was my first tattoo and i recieved it when i was in traning for the Army in South Carolina from a tattoo parlor called 5 Points.
Because technically were not supposed to have tattoos on our hands i got a white ink tattoo.
The message tattooed is “GOLD LION” which is the title of a song by the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
This picture was taken about 15 minuets after i recieved the tattoo, since then it got infected and scared over. Some of the lettering is un readable, but i love it. Its true what everyone says, once you get one tattoo your gonna want more. Now i cant stop getting more tattoos.
