Hello, my names Michael. I’m 19 and have had my knuckles tatt’d for about a year now, on my right hand I have an anchor, the illuminati sign, a spade, and a dollar sign. On the left its a diamond, a key hole, a lightning bolt, and lastly an old school bomb! They didn’t have a mass amount of meaning but I thought they looked sweet so I just went with them lol
I’m Roberto Lagarto from Brazil and my story is: “I just fucking love bad brains. So I tattooed this song to remember that when problems appears in my life I just have to keep movin’ and sailin’ on!”
But please, credit the tattoo as www.livetowin.com.br. The tattooer that made is a friend of mine, Izaac Alves (Durex)
Hey I’m Marc from Brisbane, Australia
Love your site and have been following it for a while now and thought it was about time I submitted my knux.
Heartless at the top because I really just don’t care for love or relationships. Free will in the middle to remind myself it’s my life and my choices, and daydream on the bottom as I spend way too much time in my own head.
Not sure if you’re interested but I’ve also attached a picture of the inside of my fingers.
Quelle fucking surprise is a line from an Enter Shikari song, it means what a fucking surprise, because I’m used to the shit life throws at me by now and nothing surprises me. Straight outta compton on the other side just as a bit of a joke.

Much to the disappointment and horror of my Mother, I had these done last week.. inspired by one of my favourite films, The Shining. I wanted a tattoo based on the Shining, and I saw SO many ‘Heeere’s Johnny’ tattoos that I thought I wanted something a bit different. So this is what I came up with.
They have had mixed reviews, people who have seen the film absoloutely love them, people who have not seen the film just think I’m gross.
I am a tattooist so my boss at work did them for me, she had neve seen the film so didn’t quite get why I wanted it, until I checked the stencil in the mirror and she saw it said ‘Murder’.
The image on top is how people would see it, saying Red Rum.. However because i only ever see it in mirrors, to me it says Murder.
so, i got this done about 3 and a half years ago. i worked at aebn.net (porn) and one of the owners who is a brother in my M.C. decided one night, drunk as hell, to get crazy ink. we went to our buddies shop. he got “RODEO” on the side of his hand for the reverse stroke, (true porn king) and i decided on “BALLS DEEP” because it fit on my knucks. ladies love it and when they ask what it means i simply say, “that’s how i roll” I actually really dig it, although when the children in my life asks what it means i just say it was a college football thing.(never went to college lol) looked around the web haven’t seen it so here you go.Thanks for letting me share,Jeremy
I’m Charlotte from London, England, and i’d love to tell you the story with my anchor knuckle tattoos.
Throughout my life i’ve had struggles with my emotions and behaviour, being diagnosed with bi-polar when i was just 12 years old.
The medications and antidepressants sent me through a whirlwind of problems throughout my teenage years, and it really made me feel as being positioned on this earth was just a waste of not only my own time, but also my family and friends.
I had attempted suicide when I was 14, yet I was luckily found before the angels took me. At the time I was on a weekend break away in the coastal town of Newquay when I tried to take my own life, and my first image of waking up was in the hospital overlooking the sea. I had always a passion for marine biology, and i felt this moment in my life was some sort of calling, watching the waves crashing on the Newquay beach and the boats out in the horizon.
This moment in my life had inspired my anchors – which are weighing me down to earth. No way will I be reaching the skies anytime soon.

This is my friend Tony (on the left) and myself. We both had this tattoo when we met. Never had either of us met another person with a knuckle tattoo in this fashion, but to have the same words? We knew immediately that we would be close friends, and have remained so since the day we met.The odd thing? We are both in recovery, and the tattoo symbolized the same thing for both of us. To never regret where we came from, but to always look forward to who we can become.
My name is Mick Bell and I live in Grimsby, UK. I have hours and hours of tatts but I always wanted something on my knuckles but could never decide what! I’ve always been intrigued by Latin so I decided to have something Latin (that would be 8 letters) and I came across the “Bona nox” its Latin for “Good Night”. I’m a bouncer on a weekend I thought it would go well. I’ve never seen it on anyone especially on knuckles, so I had it done. Hope it inspires others. Peace.
