I met Ari M. at the door of a bar I work at in downtown Austin. She sends us these knuckles and her story:
Lovely, with an anchor to keep my feet on the ground and a star to keep my head in the clouds. Plus yin on one thumb and yang on the other.
My name is Kenny from Lawrence, Massachusetts and im 22! The reason i got mine is cause so many people have these certain standards of living and how things are supposed to be you know. I deffinitly hate society and all the bullshit people worry about that doesnt matter. So if your an average no body living by the unwritten book, your a sold soul. But the way i live is the oposite and whats important in life or what success is, its different in my eyes and dont really care about much remember life sucks then you die.
Here’s my thumbs as well:
Dan from Eye Candy Tattoo Studio in Willenhall, United Kingdom sends us this set of knuckles:
Had these done by my father when i opened my tattoo studio.
I wanted them because there was some serious sacrifices made for me to get my shop so I decided to have it done.
My name’s Jak, and I tattoo at Body Piercing Unlimited in Anchorage, Alaska. I love movies and I really loved Talledega Nights when it came out, so, bored one day, I wrote this on my knuckles at the shop. I showed it to my friend Pete Meiners who was working with me that day, and he said “I will tattoo that on you, RIGHT NOW!”, so there it is.
David Côté sends us these knuckle tattoos and the following story:
Here’s my tattoo. It says Bros B4 Hoes and think some of our friends forget the meaning of these words of wisdom. I did this with 4 of my friends (we are a “wolfpack”) and I’ve done it in a place where I see it everyday so i’ll be sure to remind me the whole meaning.
Hi, I’m Kristopher “Crucial” Waldrep. I’m a tattooer at Gill Montie’s Tattoo Mania in Beaumont, TX.
My fingers were tattooed by Waylon Hart from Anchors Aweigh in Sugarland, TX. I got 409TX because that’s where I’m from and TM601 to represent Tattoo Mania 601 Park St.
My thumbs were tattooed by Shane Montie on a Friday the 13th, hence the lucky number 13.
Miles from Camrose, Alberta, Canada sends us these knuckle tattoos:
I got cake on my left hand to cover up the foolish tattoo i got when i was married. The K is from my ex. After realising that it wasnt working out i had to get rid of it or get something else, My brother thought of using CAKE and his reasoning was that everyone likes cake. I thought it was a pretty good idea. Im in the process of getting LIFE on my right hand and IS on my thumbs. i’ll send in pics when its done and i think i mght poach an idea from your site and go with the pacman theme on my lower knuckles.
Tattooed by Rex at Fatbaby Custom Tattoo
UPDATE 8/16/2012: Miles sent in his complete knuckle tattoos:
