Got this done in honor of Carl Sagan. Inspired from his quote from “Cosmos”:“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.”Neil deGrasse Tyson also said it very well:Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us.”Be humble for you are made of earth, be noble for you are made from stars
Alex Colding-Jørgensen of Denmark sends us the following:
Just had my knuckles done after about a year of thinking!
I chose STAR WARS for several reasons:
- being that they are the most awesome movies ever made (Episode 2,3,4,5,6 that is.. i still don’t really dig episode 1)
- my mom and stepdad just split after 20 years together, and my stepdad was the one to introduce me to STAR WARS, so this is my way of showing him that he will allways be a big part of me even now that his not with my mom.
The picture is taken 2 days after they where done, by Thomas “el rondo” Lock from Stigmata Tattoo (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Markus Sell sends us these knuckles all the way from Munich, German
The Story behind is that i already had the Stars on my left and right hand.
They weren`t made that good and i thought about having them made over and use the star for the A in the Word STAR, and on my other Hand ROCK to build the Word ROCKSTAR.
I was more into it when i read KAT von D`s Book cuz i liked her hands so much. Now im Happy to have it on my Knuckles.
Lets see what my Boss is thinking about it when i see him on Monday :-)
Im a Male Nurse here in Munich, Germany and in charge of the Ward. :-)
Dro sends us this set of ROCK STAR knuckles:
I am the bass player for south florida’s Deadstar Assembly. In this email I have attached a photo of my knuckle tatt which reads “Rock Star”. A bunch of fans have been emailing me asking me to submit my photo to this site, so I figured I’d finally take a picture and send it in. Hope it goes to good use. You can check us out at deadstar.com and myspace.com/deadstarassembly.

To be a TRUE rock star, I believe you have to NOT want to be a rockstar! 1997 by Hank at HARDCORE TATTOO in Cedar Rapids Iowa on Stingray from Exile Tattoo in Iowa City.
Ah, Fran has it totally right.
Lone Star: it’s not just the state nickname, it’s also the national beer of Texas.
I love me some Lone Star Beer. It’s what I’m sipping right now as a matter of fact. Mmmmm… Beer!
Today’s knuckle come at the hands of Josh, a piercer at True Blue Tattoos in Austin, TX.
He explained that he is a dedicated science geek and that the Vega Star is the closest solar system to ours. And yes those are fruits, vegtables and meats on the next knuckles down.
Josh is also a killer shot in the laser tag arenas. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
