Dave Bireley won’t stop

This is it, this time I mean it! Dave? Is it intervention time? This is the 3rd time we’ve featured you on the site. I know it is a rush every time, but really there comes a time in a man’s life where he has to say, “I’ve done enough.”

Here is what he has to say this time around:

Well sir I enjoy your web site so much & the collection of such great art, ideas & stories, that I got carried away contributing to it.

So here’s my last submission.

Finger tips done today May 10, 2011 – LONGEVITY, HEALTH, LOVE, PEACE, JOY, WEALTH, CHAOS, INFINITY & if i only raise each middle finger it will indicate LOVE MONEY

All the work on my hands was done by Stuart of Transcending Flesh Tattoo located In Lancaster PA.

I look forward to seeing how Dave figures out how to cram more ink on his digits.

Eye for an Eye, Tooth for a Tooth

My name is Andrea Bailey. I’m 22 and my knuckle tattoos were the 16th piece I’ve acquired.
I Got my knuckle tattoos in Portland Oregon at a shop call SeaTramp.
I didn’t know as I was walking in that I was going to get them. But I was there with a friend and told him I’d buy him a tattoo if he got his before mine so I had time to think about it. He agreed. 40 mins later the time arrived for me to make a decision. I said “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth..”

The guy said “what?”
I said “it’s in the Bible..you know?”

So he pulled out the Bible and we found the scripture.
I then knew I wanted the symbols (eyes, teeth) when necessary.
He decided to use the same font from the Bible for the lettering.

Some people ask why it’s backwards or hard to get at first.. My usual response is “revenge is something I don’t understand.”

Funny story about my knucks: I was going through a custody proceeding and the judge didn’t really like me. I could just read it in her face and comments. Her argument was that my knuckles/the scripture were affiliations with an Asian Gang. “Bahahhaha!” <— My response! I’m neither Asian or intimidation enough to be in an Asian Gang. (I did end up losing the case anyhow..? couldn’t tell ya why.. haha)



This one goes out to my pals in the Austin Facial Hair Club. Although I can not grow a beard of my own, it is important to support those who can. Lauren Ray of Pensacola, FL sends us these knuckle tattoos:

i got this tattoo because well, i LOVE beards. Everyone knows it, so i decided to truly show how much i do by getting it tattooed on my knuckles. The thumbs were a last minute idea and i love them. Tattoo courtesy of 3 Saints Tattoos, Pensacola, FL.
