Today’s knuckles come to us via Meaghan McCulloch:

Here is a two pictures of my boyfriends knuckles.
They are pretty self-explanitory, he loves hot rods, motorcyles, and well burn outs so BURN OUT!  was a pretty easy choice.

HOLD FAST – TRUE LOVE

petey-hold_fast

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:

HOPELESS – ROMANTIC

hopeless_romantic

Kalina  sends us these awesome double deckers:

I had been wanting to get something on my knuckles for some time now, but never really knew what to get. So I began thinking of things I would want. I also knew I wanted to get a Hopeless Romantic tattoo on me somewhere, because that is pretty much me in a nutshell. Honestly I am pretty sure The Notebook is my favorite movie…. I was so excited when I realize that it would fit perfectly on my knuckles, So I found the font I wanted and put a skull with a bow in with the Hopeless and a heart with crossbones in with the romantic. Kinda ties it all in together and if you just look at that finger, I like to think it says toxic love….

Mel Vicious sends us these knuckles and the following story:

My first true love died in 2000 and pretty much destroyed me back then.  For me, it’s a reminder of him.

Here is an additional picture to prove the photo is hers:

Knuckle Tattoos of the Alamo City Tattoo Expo

Hello everybody!

Two weeks ago the KnuckleTattoos.com crew headed down to San Antonio for the Alamo City Tattoo Expo. We met a ton of great people talked to them about their knuckle tattoos. I got some great pictures and we heard some great stories. My pal Kai from Mad Pengin came along for the romp and caught a bunch of interviews on video. We will be posting the videos as we have time to edit them all together. In the mean time, here are the photos I took. As always, if these are your knuckles or the knuckles of someone you know and you want to add the story, just email me at nathan[at]knuckletattoos[dot]com and I will feature the story in a separate post.

Check ’em out!

The Tattoos of the Lonestar Round Up

I spent last weekend at the Lonestar Rod & Kustom Round Up soaking up the sun talking to people, and admiring all the amazing cars and trucks. There was music, vendors, pinstripers, artists and more types of pomade than you can shake a stick at. But most of all for me, there were tons of beautiful knuckle tattoos. Check them out after the jump:

HIGH FIVE – STR8 HATE

HIGH FIVE

Ryan H. sends us these double deckers and here is his story:

Here is a picture of my knuckle tattoos. I had my hands in a weird position so the picture looks a little weird, but it’s the best picture I have of them. I got High Five on my knuckles because it’s a really Positive statement. My tattoo artist didn’t think I really wanted it on my knuckles until I came in and asked him to do it in complete sincerity. I have High Five on my upper knuckles, and just to somewhat contradict the phrase…

I originally got STR8 HATE because one of my favorite bands (xBRING IT DOWNx) has a song called Straight Hate with a pretty strong message in it. Although it may be a really negative one, it still has a lot of meaning lol.

PUNK BYRD OI OI

Jessica sends us these lovely knuckles from Minnesota:

The Story behind my knuckle tattoos is actually quite simple, but at the same time has alot of meaning behind it for me, as do all of my tattoos.

First off, the right hand “Punk” more or less describews part of the lifestyle that has come to influence who I am, and well my dress style… kind of cliche I guess but that’s how it goes. Left hand, “Byrd”, common term used in England and amongst skinheads to describe a female, and I’m damn proud to be one, as well as being a Skin byrd.

The lower knuckles, “Oi Oi” common greeting amoungst Punks and skins.

Now all together, it’s great for the simple fact that when i beat the crap out of someone, they’ve been punked by a byrd. Oi!
