The thing I love most about knuckle tattoos is the need to be clever within a predefined container of 8 (or 10) letters. Plus it's just some good ol fashion stupid fun to come up with new ones!

I think my current favs are: BOOK WORM and TRUE GENT

I have always liked the knuckle tattoos where someone has to lock their fingers together lining up their knuckles so that you can read what it says vertically (below is one I found on google for knuckle tattoos). Or the Russian style knuckle tattoos which is a-whole-nother thread that Scott and I were talking about recently so I'll be starting that soon.

How about the below one of Joaquin Phoenix knuckle tattoos? ha.

I still like my knuckle and finger tattoos and haven't gotten sick of them. Below is an old picture I found of the top portion of the fingers which reads Fidelity.

Then my upper knuckles which are not in the picture are XOXO on the top knuckles of each hand.

Did anyone else never realize how not straight their fingers are until they got them tattooed?

Quick question.......Why are finger tattoos often refered to as knuckle tattoos and knuckle tattoos just that? I often use Knuckle tattoos regardless but linguistically is not accurate. Just food for thought like why can deaf people drive but it is illegal to drive with headphones or where do pigeons come from cause i have never seen baby pigeons?

My two favorites are: SAND WICH and PLAN AHEA

Love Plan Ahea, although I'm glad it's not on me. Kind of like my friend Clare's LOL tattoo, Jason McTickles talked her into getting it where she would not see it everyday.
