LIVE FREE

Chris M. sends us these knuckles:

Hey guys!

Just got LIVE FREE on my knuckles a couple days ago! I struggled for years  and still am struggling as I live day to day minute by minute! I was a prisoner of my own making and suffered for a long time! I didn’t know was freedom was till I discovered a new way of living that I have to work in my everyday so I dont return to a hopeless state of mind! I was always told to be where my hand are and now everyday I look at them it reminds me to be free of self! That’s my story!

LIVE FREE

Hector sends us these knuckles and his story:

Hey Nathan, im 28, married, and my daughter just turned 2.  We live in Buffalo NY. The piece was done by Otis Arterberry, from American Skin Art, in Tonawanda NY.

The reason I had it done, is because i went through something, which was a turning point in my life.  I couldve let the issue consume me and I would’ve lost my family.  Or what i did, man up and decide I was in control and nothing else was.

LIVE DRAW

Jessie sends us these knuckle tattoos and the story behind them:

I’m a Sequential Artist/Illustrator attending SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). I got knuckles tattooed as inspiration to keep myself drawing. Which word is on which hand was panned as well because I’m left handed so “draw” is on the left hand..heh heh, so punny. Literally got them done two days ago and everyone keeps fist pumping me ’cause no one can tell they’re new, it sucks, but they are so awesome people just can’t help it.

LIVE LOVE

Sarah Sin sends us these knuckle tattoos:

These are my knucks:
LIVE – I believe people should live the life they choose to live without judgement by others – we all have one life to live – our own. ‘Nuff said.
LOVE – Same logic behind LIVE – I don’t believe that anyone has the right to tell me who I can or cannot love – We are all human and should treat one another as such,
LIVE and let LOVE!

LIVE FREE – IMAGINE – LOVE LIVE

Rishelle sends us these thoroughly done up knuckles, including the stories behind them all:

Hi! These are the knuckle tattoos that I just got done, and the sides of my hands by Derek Davie at Anchor’s End Tattoo in Buffalo, NY. They stand for the fact that you need to live free of everything that is negative, live free of other people’s negative feelings about you. Live the life you want, the way you want, and don’t give a single care as to what others have to say about it. Live free, imagine peace and love your life. The sides stand for that you have to know more to hate less, less is more and more is less, you have to know hate and hate what you know. Enjoy :]

LIVE LOVE

Laurel Wolfe sends us these knuckles:

I have two philosophies in life: To Live & To Love. I also believe we should live to love. Thus my knuckle tats. I have never regretted my word choice; if given another chance I would choose the same words again. I adore the message they give to those who see them.

LOVE DON’T LIVE HERE

Rubie Irene sends us these lovely knuckles:

I got these done a few days ago (8/30/2010). I have numerous tattoos but none have really been as meaningful as these ones. I am jaded and cynical and unwelcoming. It’s all been a process. I am not saying I will never love again, but for now, it doesn’t live in my heart. I want to forget the bad things. Welcome the new. Sullen I know, but it is what it is.

My artist really laughed his @ss off when I told him there absolutely NEEDED to be an apostrophe. I think it makes the tattoo. Says he has never done one with punctuation before.

Done by Angel Murrietta in Pacific, WA.

A lot of notes from across the ocean. Today we have Wiggy from England:

Hi my name is wiggy, i’m from eastbourne in england. I’ve wanted my knuckles done ever since i first started getting tattooed, but untill recently didnt have the guts to do so. Now i have a good collection and im quite covered  i thought the time was right. After changing my mind several times i finally decided to get LIVE FREE. This is because i like the meaning behind it. I think by being heavily tattooed you are living free and expressing your views through body art.
