Despite the fact that tattoos appeared long before the existence of the prison regime, the widespread use of tattoos is associated with it. Initially, Zonov tattoos were made to designate violators, repeat offenders, and even Siberian convicts. However, over time, these concepts have changed significantly; in this article we will tell you exactly how.

Criminal tattoos and their meaning

Every tattoo you get in prison has a meaning. Moreover, it not only indicates the status of its owner, but can also mean the number of years of imprisonment, the reason for imprisonment and other information.

The most common tattoo options for convicts have the following interpretation:

  • Wolf is a leader, means independence;
  • Tiger - cruelty, hatred of justice;
  • The domes on the church indicate the number of “walkers”;
  • The cat is the original inhabitant of the prison, also a symbol of good luck and thieves;
  • Tattoo of the Mother of God is a talisman for juvenile prisoners;
  • Spider is a symbol of a thief;
  • The crucifix is ​​a sign of a criminal authority;
  • Runes or swastika - protest;
  • The rising sun is a symbol of freedom, and the rays represent the number of imprisonments.

The meaning of the same tattoo may differ depending on its location. For example, a star on the shoulder is a symbol of a thief in law; it can also mean the denial of prison laws, and stars on the knees mean love for freedom.

The meaning of a cross tattoo on the back in prison is strong will and disobedience; if the cross is a gambling cross, the wearer is a thief. The meaning of a cross tattoo on the knees differs according to the type of crucifixion and can mean both faith in God and a special worldview.

Tattoo rings are the most common tattoos in the criminal sphere. From the pattern on the fingers, it is easy to determine what caste the prisoner belongs to, what he was convicted of, where he was imprisoned, and even how he feels about law enforcement agencies and the world in general.

In some cases, a tattoo may indicate fatherlessness, birth in prison, and a first crime committed as a minor.

The most popular shoulder tattoo is the image of Jesus Christ, with the Bible in second place. The symbol of such a tattoo is twofold: in one case it means the religion of the prisoner, and if there is fire under the main part of the tattoo, it means that the person’s faith has burned out.

Tattoos on hands and knees

The main tattoos on the hands are located directly on the fingers. Tattoos on the phalanges of the fingers are the calling card of a prisoner. In addition, the outer part of the palm and forearm are often covered with tattoos.

Who can get thieves' tattoos?

Thieves tattoos, like all others, have a classification. Authoritative tattoos can be worn by a person with a high status, acquired due to the severity of the crimes committed and existing connections in criminal circles. But this does not mean that the thieves’ stars can be filled by any imprisoned criminal who considers himself such. After all, for the stars of thieves in law, which are the most authoritative tattoos, if something happens, they can “ask”. That is, ask to tell about what action they deserved. Therefore, any thieves’ tattoos must be earned. The most popular among thieves' tattoos are images of a ring. This thief's sign can tell you how many years, where and for what the criminal was imprisoned.

Women's prison tattoos

Women's prison tattoos have much fewer meanings than men's, but in many ways they are similar. For example, women also get tattoos on their fingers to indicate that they belong to the thieves’ caste.

If a woman in the zone gets a tattoo of a rose, butterflies on her shoulder, or a female silhouette with a crown, this means that she has low social responsibility. The source of such tattoos is the lily mark on the shoulder, which was burned in medieval France to girls engaged in prostitution.
