12 Hardcore Lettering Knuckle Tattoos

If you're going to get your knuckles tattooed anyway, make sure it's as badass and as impressive as these stunning lettering pieces!

Knuckle tattoos are the more daredevil relatives of the smaller but not as much subtler finger tattoos. These things take dedication so if you're planning to get your knuckles done — whether in both hands or not — make sure you think this through because we can't all be like the late singer, Mitch Lucker, who simply blacked out all his knuckles when he broke his straightedge lifestyle. You can't just hide these things either so give it a thought. But with savage-looking lettering tattoos like these, making a decision have never been this hard!

Lettering tattoos are a whole new different style of tattooing altogether that doesn't receive as much attention and appreciation these days as the others. Lettering is an art and just because you can make stunning blackwork designs doesn't automatically make you qualified with lettering. There's a community of tattoo artists who focus on scripts and take these things seriously. They know how these things work and what looks good and what doesn't. Check out some of their works on knuckles below.
