C’EST LA VIE

Nick Gill sends us these knuckle tattoos and the story behind them:

Hears my knuckles witch spells out ‘c’est la vie’ meaning that is life, i had these done because i always say that everything happens for a reason and what happens good or bad!! that is life!! it took me 4 months to decide on what to get and in the end this one was me all over! im soo glad i got them done and really happy the way they turned out!! get your knuckles done!!!!!!!!

c’est la vie – LOVE SICK

Hi there, my name is Pascual Romero, and I have a hard time finding jobs ;)

I kid, but I do have knuckle tattoos, and I thought I’d share mine.

The “c’est la vie” statement is something I like to live my life by.  Loosely translated from French, it means “such is life” or “that’s life”, which is my rather laid-back way of looking at what comes my way.  Bad day, good day, it’s just life and it’s up to me to take it for what it is.  I think it’s a very positive way of looking at things, personally.
Second, my “Lovesick” tattoo across my lower knuckles was actually the end product of the little heart tattooed on my right middle finger.  I got it in honor of my TV show “Rad Girls”, where I serve as the associate producer and occasional on-screen personality.  I wanted to incorporate it into something clever, and being the romantic that I am, figured it would be a pretty fitting statement.

Thanks!
