Cultures of Tattoos

Scarification of the DANGEROUS

Time Line

Gang Tattoos usually come from prison. They are mostly about racism, gang affiliation or violence.

Some symbols you would see on a gang member is a tear drop meaning they killed someone or they lost someone they lost. They might even have their gang name tattooed.

Prison Tattoos should be carefully thought of, because if it is misinterpreted then bad things will happen. The tattoos would be about prison, pain or culture. In prison, tattoos are done by a hand made gun. A safety pin, paper clip, a staple or a guitar string. That would be attached to a motor.

In Africa, tattooing was WAY different! Since everyone had darkskin at the time, they would have to draw out the tattoo first and make scars, later rubbing sand or ash. It was called scarification. Now its done by using a scapel!

Ah, yes sadly. This is goodbye! I leave you with the information I have provided you on tattoos. Although they can be scary and scarring, don't be afraid! Tattoos are a beautiful thing, but be careful, they are forever. Like Pamela Anderson said,"Tattoos are like stories - they're symbolic of the important moments in your life. Sitting down, talking about where you got each tattoo and what it symbolizes, is really beautiful."
