i don't think that it was really a gang thing to begin with, more of a cultural thing, like tribes and stuff marking up their bodies to show strength.

That's right, it's part of the culture. Tats could be used to express different things. I got a primo that has a 8 inch tat of the Virgin Mary on his back. Looks real firme. Then of course all hood stuff.

word tats are tight, i got loyalty across my stomach, but you gotta mix it up and get some pictures,
detail is one of the more important aspects of what i want, ya dig?
out lines are fucking awsome too,
colors are kinda weird since i don't have any, drawn on or naturally, jk.

im laughing at dude cause in alot of these different pages hes running around saying that basically mexicans started the whole game.
how the hell are you gonna say that mexicans have the tightest tattoos? from their skin pigmentation? what about arabs and hindis? pretty much the same color tone.
