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.
My name is Michael Cole and im from Phoenix Arizona.
Story behind my knuckles tats:
This was way back when i lived in North Carolina. I was sitting on my couch, having a toke with some friends, and we got into a conversation about tattoos. I really wanted to get my knuckles ink’d and I had seen alot of people with the Love and Hate tat’s. Of course as the smokers were we got into how its really just about love man, so that’s where Just Love came from. Also i liked the double meaning so I immediatly went to get the work done down @ a local shop. The tattoo artist gave me a really hard time about doing work on my hands with me being so young. I also got some roman numerals done on the smaller bridge of the fingers to represent divine numerals. I’ve never regretted it.
My name is Joe Moxley and I’m the co-owner of the clothing line Legionnaire, with Mike Herrera, the singer of MxPx. I got LOVE MORE
to remind me that my friends and family are the reason for our success
and to love them more each day. Tattoo was done by Kay Boak at
SouthSide Tattoo in Ashland Oregon. She is also designing some the
new shirts that will be out this June. Thank you for your time.
My name is Andrew and the the story behind my knuckle tattoos, well Love is happiness and Grace…is a lot of things, but for the sake of being combined with love, it’s forgiveness. For my thumbs, I’m from Rhode Island, and the anchor is on our flag, “hope we have as an anchor of the soul.” <3 Little Rhodey.
I got “TRUE LOVE” a few years back when my daughter started living with me full time,to me the love for your child is true love. The tattoo was done by Gordon Snyder @ S.I.C. Tattoos in Bozeman (now Butte) MT.
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.
Hi there, my name is Pascual Romero, and I have a hard time finding jobs ;)
I kid, but I do have knuckle tattoos, and I thought I’d share mine.
The “c’est la vie” statement is something I like to live my life by. Loosely translated from French, it means “such is life” or “that’s life”, which is my rather laid-back way of looking at what comes my way. Bad day, good day, it’s just life and it’s up to me to take it for what it is. I think it’s a very positive way of looking at things, personally.
Second, my “Lovesick” tattoo across my lower knuckles was actually the end product of the little heart tattooed on my right middle finger. I got it in honor of my TV show “Rad Girls”, where I serve as the associate producer and occasional on-screen personality. I wanted to incorporate it into something clever, and being the romantic that I am, figured it would be a pretty fitting statement.
