If You See Someone With This 3 Dot Tattoo, LOOK Out
Prisons are places where many convicts like to show off the crimes they’ve committed or show off which particular gang they belong to. One way to do this is through a tattoo.
Many of these tattoos are permanent, and as a result when people are released from prison they still bear the marks of whatever particular crime they committed.
Independent Journal reported on some of the most common tattoos that originate in prisons.
One tattoo was particularly distinctive: the triple dot. Called “mi vida loca” (“my crazy life” in Spanish), the triple dot tattoo doesn’t represent an allegiance to a particular gang, but it does indicate that the person wearing it lives the “gang lifestyle.”
In addition to that, there is also the MS-13 tattoo, which generally spells out “MS-13.”
