Pee Wee Herman ' I KNOW YOU ARE BUT WHAT AM I ' is the latest in my knuckle tattoo series. The first of my knuckle tattoo pieces was a Michael Jackson Thriller one and this will be the 8th one now. I came up with the concept because I have a fascination with knuckle tattoos. I like how only certain words/phrases will fit onto knuckles and I enjoy painting them on people who don't really have visable tattoos or are not likely to have any. I think it stems from me not having any tattoos and most all of my friends do. I enjoy tattoos but don't like how permanent they are and as an artist I have fears of the quality not being up to my standards. I enjoy coming up with fun tattoo knuckle ideas and adding to my ever growing painting series. ' I know You Are But What Am I 'is a famous line that Pee Wee says In his cult classic movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure so I thought it would be the perfect fit.
