I met Carrie in line for the extras casting for Machete Kills. I was super stoked to see a set of knuckle tattoos in kanji. She says that the knuckles mean CREATE and DESTROY in Japanese. Carrie also said that she has received some very negative reactions from more traditional Japanese people, but that she still loves them.
My name is Jeff, and my knuckle rockers read Willensstark, which means strong willed in German. Through lifes toils and tribulations my will has been forged into the strong will I maintain today. This tattoo was done by Kyle Speraw at Altered Image in Pasadena, Md.
My name is Matt Holden. The other night my friend Sara was in town from Denver and we decided to get tattoos while she was here. We walked over to Vivid Tattoo in San Diego, saw Andrew and I walked away with a thumbs up on my middle finger. I love the irony of flipping the bird and also giving a thumbs up.
I am a tattoo artist at Last Chance Tattoo in Las Vegas. I recently did some lower knuckles on one of my husbands co-workers who just got out of a relationship. She got Love Kills with a little broken heart instead of the o in Love. She also has Man’s Ruin on her top knuckles which her first husband Sean did. Here is everyone’s info and the picture is attached. I hope that we make it on your site!
Knuckles belong to: Trieka, Bartender @ The Divebar, Las Vegas NV
Tattooer Rachael Scumbag @ Last Chance Tattoo, Las Vegas NV
Tattooer: Sean, (not sure where he lives now) Formerly of Precious Slut, Las Vegas NV

Megan F. sends us this set of knukle tattoos and her story:
Ok so I just recently started to plan my future with regards to university and stuff….and I realised that I am at a certain point in my life where anything is possible. I realised the freedom I had to do absolutely anything I wanted, when I wanted, where I wanted. Freedom of speech, freedom of thought!
