My name is Lindey! I’m from Massachusetts; I got LOVE MORE on my knuckles as a representation that I truly believe people need to love more. I grew up being a very loving child and I’ve always had a big heart. I’ve been thinking about this tattoo for a few years, and the placement felt perfect to me. I think if society really showed love to the people they really care about it would make a big difference in their lives and the person(s) they love! I’ve seen a lot of love and a lot of heart break and I have it burned into my brain that people will get by easier and live life better if they just love more. No matter who you are, love is the greatest feeling to be felt. I got this done from DOUG as Eternal Images in Milford, MA

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 :]
Billy Crawford sends us these knuckle tattoos, and his story goes like this:
I got Loveless for a few reasons. I came out when I was 11. My mothers response was that I was going to hell and that noone would ever love me. I got it because the gay community is filled with a lot of lust and little love. Every relationship I’ve been in has been short cause they always want more than I’m willing to give. I got Loveless to remind myself not to be Loveless.
I met Sean outside of one of my favorite coffee shops in Austin. When I asked him about his knuckles this is what he had to say about them.
I got RAGE on right hand. My punching hand. LOVE is on my right, my guitar hand.
I didn’t want the typical love/hate so I went with rage instead. I don’t hate a lot of things but I sure did get angry a lot when I got the knuckles done.
MANS RUIN – LOVE KILLS
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!

My name is Daniel Golden-Perez, I’m 20 years of age and I’ve had the words, “True Love” On my knuckles for a couple months now. There are only 2 reasons behind why I chose this, number one being an inspirational man to me by the name of Dallas Green, of the band city and colour, his music moved me forward through hardships and let me know and feel that I wasn’t alone and it really helped me get by, needless to say he has the same tattoo on his knuckles. Reason two is because I feel that I’ve simply felt true love before, and I loved every second and I will never forget it, so in a way it tells me that I was one of the lucky ones, fortunate to feel love, and then I just think about how many other people in the world are searching for love, and how grateful I am to have experienced it.
