21 Bad-Ass Knuckle Tattoos

Knuckle tattoos are not for everyone. Some people are quick to stereotype you as a possible drinker who made a big mistake. The real truth with knuckle tattoos is that most people who choose the knuckles tattoos do so because they have a deep personal or deeply symbolic message and they truly want the world to see it.

Knuckle tattoos are typically made up with one letter or symbol tattooed under each knuckle, and the thumb is almost always not used. Each hand gives you room for four letters or symbols. When you have your fist closed the four letters or symbols are easy to read. Knuckle tattoos are most often seen as letters or symbols like true love, lost soul, game over, epic fail or the suits of cards, hearts , moons, stars, skulls, keys and locks just to name a few.
