SINK SWIM

I’ve been talking with Finny for ages now and I finally got it together to post his knuckles. Here they are along with the stories behind them:

swim_sink
What would Finny do? SINK SWIM is his yin and yang. Has a devil side and and an angel side, and tattoos themed to match. Thus his swim is on his "good" side, comedy, his mom. SINK on his left for the bad, tragedy, father.
swim_sink_full
Fruits and veggies - his mom said he needed somethign to remind him to eat his fruits and veggies every day. He is going down the path of organic farming.
lobster
The Crawfish/Lobster. The only piece of Sailor Jerry flash on his body. Sailor Don, busted out actual Sailor Jerry Red and mixed it with everclear. Salt and pepper shakers adorn to add a little spice.

SWIM SINK

Mika Lahtinen sends these knuckles in all the way from Helsinki Finland:

the story behind the knuckles is very simple, in this great world we live in you can do two things either sink or swim.

the 51 on my thumbs is the area code, of the part of helsinki that i live and work, so my life revolves around this area

tattoos were done by krisse at legacy tattoo in Helsinki, Finland

SINK SWIM

Sink or Swim?

Devon G. of Long Island, New York presents these knuckles and a killer story:

As i was growing up, and even still now, i have been fortunate enough to bear witness to the duality of all things. i have watched people rise to the highest highs, becoming extremely sucessful in their way of thought, of life, and i have watched people slowly kill themselves, through drugs, or other forms of destructive behavior, often resulting in death. My knuckles serve as a constant reminder, maybe even not only for myself, that there is always a choice, of way of thought, perception, and action. As being a professional chef, i often see actions that glide along the surface of the day, riding the wave of life, taking it as it comes, and adjusting… And i see the floundering that results from illl thought, laziness, and fear. Either we can swim effortlessly through all things, or we can sink from the weight of our own negative energies.
