Tasha G. sent in these knuckle tattoos. This is what she had to say about them:
twas love…i picked that because it was
motivating…to do things for love and to NOT do
things for love…
All I know about this one is that the guy’s name is Jarret and he is awesome. His knuckle tattoos are a tribute to the first Star Wars movie’s subtitle “A New Hope“. On his thumbs the symbols for the Empire and the Rebel Alliance. “Shoot First” is a reference to Han Solo shooting Greedo in the Cantina scene. In the original film Han shot first, killing Greedo in cold blood. In the remastered version, Greedo shoots and then Han retaliates, taking the teeth out of Han Solo and making his eventual redemption considerably weaker.
I bet everyone was wondering how long it would take before I found a set of knuckles with KNUCKLES written on it. This is Will Ellis, a tattoo artist at A Million Tattoos and Piercing here in Austin, TX. Aside from the awesome knuckles, he was the artist that tattooed LOVE COCK. Read that post to find out why he is a lucky guy.
These beauties belong to Cheryl a tattooist at Custom Tattoos from the Soul here in Austin, TX. She went through a bad break up and was originally going to get FUCK LOVE but decided at the last that she still loved the cock. The artist apparently took a lot of convincing to do this tattoo. He is currently her boyfriend.
I had the honor of asking Gill Montie for a picture of his knukles and he graciously obliged me. The WWMD stands for “What Would Matt Do”. Matt is a good friend of his who does Special Effects for movies. Gil said that Matt was the coolest guy under pressure and he wanted to be reminded of that when he was under pressure. Gill is currently living in Beaumont Texas and owns Tattoo Mania. Gill is also known for his work creating George Clooney’s tribal tattoo in From Dusk to Dawn.
These hands belong to Tom Y. He got HOMEWARD because he is always the first one to go home or leave the party. He also doubled up and got:
The story goes like this. He and his friends were sitting out side of the tattoo shop talking about what they would get on their second set of knuckles when some girls walked by and said “You guys are some damn fools”. So he went in and got them done.
These hands belong to Smitty in Omaha, Nebraska. He owns a tattoo and piercing shop called Big Brain Productions. He was thinking about getting FAKE TITS or CHOP SUEY, but opted for RIFF RAFF in carnival letters instead.
These knuckle tattoos belong to Bud W, apprentice tattoo artist at Inktown Tattoo in Lombard IL. He says that he is hell bent to tattoo, thus the knuckles.
Edit: I also wanted to add that his busniness card guarantees his work “If you sit fucking still” and is available in Several Bright Colors.
These are the hands of Christopher G from Dallas, TX. It means Love and Hate in Spanish. It is also the name of the tattoo shop that he owns.
I just wanted to say:
If you feel like spreading the love, throw this code around:
