About the Symbols
Prison Tattoos

Although many people entering the prison population are affiliated with the hate movement before their incarceration, prisoners from different ethnic backgrounds often join racist gangs once inside the penal system. They join these groups not only because they adhere to the gang's racist ideology, but also for protection and as a way to participate in criminal activity within the prison. These inmates' tattoos offer important information about gang affiliation, personal history and criminal activity.
