The Knuckle Tattoos of South by Southwest

Hello gentle readers,

Last week was the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas. I spend most of the week at Beerland working the door and taking photos of knuckle tattoos. I didn’t get the details on most of them since I was kind of busy. Hopefully some of them will contact me and I’ll be able to update with their stories.

See the whole set after the jump.
