HOPELESS – ROMANTIC

Kalina  sends us these awesome double deckers:

I had been wanting to get something on my knuckles for some time now, but never really knew what to get. So I began thinking of things I would want. I also knew I wanted to get a Hopeless Romantic tattoo on me somewhere, because that is pretty much me in a nutshell. Honestly I am pretty sure The Notebook is my favorite movie…. I was so excited when I realize that it would fit perfectly on my knuckles, So I found the font I wanted and put a skull with a bow in with the Hopeless and a heart with crossbones in with the romantic. Kinda ties it all in together and if you just look at that finger, I like to think it says toxic love….

FEAR HOPE

Alan Mandic sends us these knuckles with the following story:

I recently and finally got my knuckles tattooed.  I have been wanting them for a year now, and finally settled on what I wanted about 6 months ago.  I had them done at Tattoo Mark’s Studio I in Souderton PA, by Frankie G. and Lowercase J (From Studio II). I figured if I was getting both hands done, why not at the sametime?  Whenever anyone asks what hurt the worst, I can’t say.  When one hand was being hurt so was the other, so I couldn’t focus on it, ha. 

I got Fear Hope because I often find myself stuck in the same old rut in life.  It means that you shouldn’t sit around hoping things will happen, you have to go out and make them happen.  So Fear Hope.  I have plans to add on already, maybe a ME under FEAR just for fun. 

Here is a pic of the double team:

A NEW HOPE

All I know about this one is that the guy’s name is Jarret and he is awesome. His knuckle tattoos are a tribute to the first Star Wars movie’s subtitle “A New Hope“. On his thumbs the symbols for the Empire and the Rebel Alliance. “Shoot First” is a reference to Han Solo shooting Greedo in the Cantina scene. In the original film Han shot first, killing Greedo in cold blood. In the remastered version, Greedo shoots and then Han retaliates, taking the teeth out of Han Solo and making his eventual redemption considerably weaker.
