    That’s a nice typewriter typeface he used on that tattoo.

    I know a guy who has “JUST READ” tattooed on his knuckles. And when crosses his arms…

    It would be interesting to use letters that could form other words when you interlocked your hands or crossed your fingers . With this one you could get ‘emo darer’ as an anagram, but I’m thinking words/phrases that make sense and are actually possible to form without breaking your own fingers.

    That dude better be careful he never loses his left index finger in a table saw accident, or his hands will tell people to read unwrought metal.

    Gotta love the bandshirt as well… I don’t know the band, but anything with this font screams “some kind of extreme metal”. Also, the word “mammoth grinder” might be considered a hint.

    Hey! That’s me! Glad everybody likes my hands! The really funny thing is that a couple of weeks ago i bought Cory Doctorow’s “Rapture of the Nerds” because the title caught my eye, and then two weeks later, and unbeknownst to me, he comes into the restaurant i work at and takes a picture of my knuckles!

    Anyway, thanks for the love. Also, i’m a performance poet with a bunch of videos out there and you should all check them out! Maybe you’ll like them as much as my knuckles!

  8. Various funny changes by way of loosing one or more fingers:

    Red More (communist?)
    Read Ore (who reads minerals?)
    Read Moe (Simpsons? I donno.)
    Rad More (a politely formed request for more radioactivity)
    Rad Ore (radioactive ore)
    Ed More (nice to meet you Ed)

    So weird that 1) This a guy I know, and 2) This is the second time he’s had one of his tattoos posted on Boing Boing.

    Here’s the first:

    And I can attest: his spoken word is some of the best in Canada. Here’s one of my favourites:
