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.

I got these knuckle tattoos a few months ago. They are of some of the major religious symbols in blacklight ink, therefor completely invisible under normal light….
I got them because A) i thought it was funny and B) that way when i die i have all my bases covered…. :)

David sent this one in. Here is his story:
This was my second Tattoo I decided to get after my first year of Marriage, it’s my Wife’s initials in Runes. I don’t like wearing jewellery so I thought getting a Tattoo was a WAY better idea and I thought my Wife would love it. She wasn’t to happy that I got it, and wasn’t willing to wear my Wedding Ring. After 5 years of marriage and knowing her for 12 years, she finally warming up to Ink I got in honour of her. I plan on getting both my Children’s names done in Runes as well.

This is Nicole Williams a learning leader Adviser at the Northwest Hair academy in Everett, Wa:
My name is Nicole Williams. These are my knuckle tattoos. It literally means “to love now” in Tibetan. I am a Tibetan Buddhist and I wanted the writing to match the Tibetan I have tattooed on my chest. I got this one to remind me to live in the moment because anything could happen and that I should love life and everyone around me now because they may not be there later.
These are the knuckles of Ben Tupper, Hereford UK. His story is a timely one:
Basically I woke up this morning (07/7/07) and like you do sometimes, I was thinking about death. I began to think about how finite life really is and how I need to be more spontaneous. So, I went to see my friend in town and got the hour glass and coffin, kind of to remind me that times ticking away. Plus I want to move work on to my hands gradually.
