4x4 Knuckle Tattoos

dies irae

dies irae

Pjotr K. of Finland sends us the story of his knuckles:

The translation of “dies Irae” is “day of wrath“.
It’s the first words of an 13th century latin hymn that desrcribes the judgement day.

I’ve always found the “dies irae”-poem inspirational and fascinating.

And i think that it makes a powerful tattoo with meaning in it.

The picture is taken just few minutes after it  was made  and the red parts of it are’nt really red, they’re just swollen.

Now  i’ve had it for something like a year and a half and it needs some re-colouring and little fixing.
