Dagger Tattoos

Maggie Lindemann


Four of Maggie Lindemann’s five knuckle tattoos are astronomy-related, so this dagger on her thumb seems out of place.  Maggie explained in a tweet that this tattoo isn’t connected to the others: “I’ve wanted a knife for a while but didn’t know where to put it, so I saw someone with one on their thumb and fell in love.”  She did however put dots below her nail like the tattoos on all of her other fingers.  She got this tattoo from artist Romeo Lacoste on October 16, 2016 at the same time as the star on her pinkie.  With all five fingers covered, she announced that her hand is now complete — but she’s still got room on her lower knuckles if she changes her mind!

The knife represents Maggie’s interest in blood and gore. “I’ve always been so fascinated with horror, murders, etc. so I felt it was appropriate,” she tweeted.

Beth Lucas

Acoustic artist Beth Lucas from Brisbane, Australia has been adding to her collection of colourful body art consistently over the last six years. What started out as a little rebellious inking has turned into a fully fledged artistic journey and Beth’s not about to stop anytime soon.

Beth has one full sleeve (right arm) that is made up of roses/vines and other traditional inspired pieces, such as a snake, dagger, locket with keys and ribbons, and a small bird cage on the inside.
