100 (And Counting) Of The Sickest Hand Tattoos

Yes, hand tattoos are visible (no, seriously?), potential job stoppers and painful...
But they are also fascinating little pieces that most of the tattoo artists and tattoo lovers have a weakness for (and so do I). Knuckles, fists and palms of the tattooed are decorated with care and often a great imagination, with all tattoo styles possible. Some tattoo artists have even a kind of specialization and are creating amazing pieces.
I have drawn on my personal archives to show the most incredible hand tattoos I have picked out from the internet. Just curious or already hand tattooed looking for some more?
Enjoy this collection of 100 and counting jaw-dropping hand tattoos ...
