Jesse Bink is a bad ass mofo. His knuckles and his reasons:

hey man, im Jesse Bink, i’m a tattoo’er from NYC, and my HOLD TRUE knuckle tattoo’s are based on a feeling i have that you should hold true to your convictions whatever they may be, mine being Straight-Edge… the small staggered knuckle set was a dare by a good friend of mine after calling me out on a “i will get paramore knuckle tattoo’s i love that band so much.”…. so i cant back out of a “you wont” challenge… hence, paramore knuckles… i DO love me some paramore though… dont like it? fight me.



Tonight I saw Thee Oh Sees destroy the Beerland patio. I had to stand on the patio fence in order to shoot pictures. Dangerous, dangerous! 

After the set I talked to Petey Damnit from the band and got these pictures of his knuckles. If you get a chance to catch this band live, don’t miss out.

Don’t miss ’em, you will thank me.

UPDATE: Here are my pictures from the show: 



Iggy sends us this set of knuckle tattoos:
