The letters "AB" represent Aryan Brotherhood, a prison
gang that originated in 1967 in the California Department of Corrections
at San Quentin. Many members display white supremacist ideology,
but they are first and foremost a criminal gang involved in the
methamphetamine trade. AB has also spawned other white gangs in
the prison system. Sometimes, AB tattoos will identify a memberís
state of origin. Several common nicknames for AB members are Alice,
Alice Baker, Tip & Brand and, the Brand.
