I met Raphael outside of the Shangri La a few weeks back. He said he got HOLD TRUE because he stays true to the course.
Hi.. I am Marcos From Brazil.
Before I sent this picture: HARD CORE
My first knuckle tattoo…Now, I sending my second knuckle Tattoo..
which is a complement to the first tattoo.
This tattoo was made by my friend and brother Thiago Bitencourt
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.
Crissa La-Lynn sends us these digits:
I don’t really have a huge amazing story for getting these tattoos. I know a lot of people either get “love hate” “stay true” but stay true actually means something to me. I feel its important to always stay true to yourself cause in the end you are the only one you have.
Jesse Bink is a bad ass mofo. His knuckles and his reasons:
hey man, im Jesse Bink, i’m a tattoo’er from NYC, and my HOLD TRUE knuckle tattoo’s are based on a feeling i have that you should hold true to your convictions whatever they may be, mine being Straight-Edge… the small staggered knuckle set was a dare by a good friend of mine after calling me out on a “i will get paramore knuckle tattoo’s i love that band so much.”…. so i cant back out of a “you wont” challenge… hence, paramore knuckles… i DO love me some paramore though… dont like it? fight me.
After the set I talked to Petey Damnit from the band and got these pictures of his knuckles. If you get a chance to catch this band live, don’t miss out.
Don’t miss ’em, you will thank me.
UPDATE: Here are my pictures from the show:
