    To each his own, but c'mon. There's a better way to honor someone than that.

    Don't tear drops in the gang world is each one represents someone you've killed?

    Re: Tyler Smith honors late father with...

    Hafta say I sorta agree with you. I read the article and for the most part it was a good read, and if you know the tear tattoo's are a tribute to his father then it can be OK. The problem is there are a few not so cool meanings for tear tattoo's, like jail time and how many people you killed, that can really spoil his good intentions. Sounds like he had a great relationship with his father though which is good

    Maybe Tylers father didnt have cancer at all? And his father just happened to die shortly after returning home? Coincidence?!?

    I shouldnt joke about it, especially since hes not a Hawk anymore.

    Gang Tattoos - Gangs OR Us

    It looks like it has several meanings, one of which is the loss of a family member.

    Long, LONNNNGGGGG before the gangs of today, bikers (the gangs of yesteryear) were doing tattoo tears for fallen brothers in their own clubs. I believe that is where this originated.
