I met Sean outside of one of my favorite coffee shops in Austin. When I asked him about his knuckles this is what he had to say about them.
I got RAGE on right hand. My punching hand. LOVE is on my right, my guitar hand.
I didn’t want the typical love/hate so I went with rage instead. I don’t hate a lot of things but I sure did get angry a lot when I got the knuckles done.
I met Mitchel in Oklahoma City this last weekend. He turned me on to an abandoned church that I explored with camera in hand.
He said that he used to just have PUNX on his right hand, but later changed it to LOVE with a safety pin. Which is even more punk rock if you ask me.
Liz sent us these knuckle tattoos and the story behind them:
I’m a 27 year old outdoor educatorcommunity builder. I will always offer my hand with love, and presence good will wherever I go. To create a change in consciousness, we must offer a gesture of peace.
