Richard Blackman of Shud Up ‘n’ Train in Dallas, Texas sends us these knuckle tattoos and his story:

The story behind it is that I’m a fitness trainer and everything I do goes against the grain, from diet to how I exercise, it’s the same in life too, I don’t do it on purpose life just ends up that way, so all my life I’ve had people look at me as extreme especially when they see my feats of strength, well, I struggled to accept that label in the beginning but now I’m taking it and running with it with all I got and I’m not going to hold myself back anymore from being me!….so I’m stepping up my game in everything I do and going “HARDCORE” and I had the tatts done as a constant reminder of what and who I am.


NERD COREFriday’s knuckles come courtesy of Kenneth F. of Brockton, Massachusetts and he is awesome:

I got the idea from the genre of music and it also reflects on me as a person and my lifestyle. Truly i am a nerd at heart <3. I am a nerd and I’m proud to say that I’ve role played, played magic, played video games for 24 hours straight, and that I’ve watched the entire series of Ranma 1/2 in japanese. I love who i am and i love my knuckle tat’s! (btw I’m always turned on!)
