SELF MADE

Andy Garcia sends us his fresh ink:

I got it in blacklight ink because I didn’t want to effect my opportunities with employment.  I choose self made because I am responsible for who I created myself into. Physically w all the ink I have and also mentally to how I view things

HAND MADE

Garrett Styles sends us these awesome knuckle tattoos:

hand made, represents 3 aspects to me. first and most importantly, I am a christian and believe that we are all hand made by God himself. secondly, i am  a mechanic and do all my work with my hands, i make a living with them and support my family with them, so to me , my family is hand made. Thirdly, i am into 4×4 trucks and there is alot of fabrication involved, and i always prefer to make what i can rather than buy it. being hand made. 

all my work has been done by Baillie Fruson @ eye of the needle saskatoon saskatchewan.

HAND MADE

Just got this update from Richard Baggett. I had taken his picture at the Lonestar Round Up and he wanted to add his story to his knuckles:

I’m an Artist Blacksmith in Fort Worth,Texas.
I’ve allways worked with my hands. A skill I thank my grandfathers for. Working with metal has always been my favorite medium. Several years ago a great guy introduced me to Blacksmithing.
Now I build hand forged sculptures. Hence the tattoo “HAND MADE”.
