  1. i like the juxtaposition of fancy script and emoticon. somehow, though, internet lingo is not something i’d want tattooed on me.

  2. I’ve never been a big fan of emoticons with noses.

    Cool tat though. Although I dont like the style, it’s always cool to see some love behind the ink.

  3. Cutest knuckle tats ever :)

    As for second child…well. It’s not like theres no space left anywhere?

  4. wait until he hits his teens :P
    Lovely tat’s though. I can’t think of a better reason to get knuckle tattoo’s than to tell your son how much you love him.

  5. You named your kid what? How so you even pronounce that? Just seems like saddling a kid with the burden of an unpronounceable name is a rather cruel thing to do. You can still go for crazy cool names like “Moxy CrimeFighter Jillet” but really is that ‘shade’ ‘zade’ ‘kade’?

    Don’t be cruel.


  6. It’s a cute tattoo (and great nail polish). I admit I am a bit curious about how ‘Xade’ is pronounced. My first reaction is ‘zade’….

  7. I like the knuckles, but I especially like the placement of his jesus fish on his chest. :)

  8. Ok, to clear up the confusion, Its pronounced Zade.
    Oh and potter, I didnt “saddle” him with a name thats hard to pronounce. I gave him an original name that I created when I was in eleventh grade. Im so sorry it offends you, and I hope that he can grow up without running into you, I wouldnt want to “saddle” you with the burden of having to undertake the insanely difficult task of pronouncing such a difficult name. Perhaps he will just have to communicate with people that actually attended school after the second grade.

  9. I think Xade is a fine name. I was just making sure my gut reaction was correct. I think it’s nice to run across a unique name that isn’t just a misspelling of an already common name.
