Russian Prison Tattoos

I came across this link on Tumblr and thought it was pretty cool. The site gives you some designs and tattooed folks and tells you their meanings. Definitely worth checking out. Enjoy.

‘Stalin was born in the 9th day of the moon, his ‘bat’ image is the symbol of Satan!&nbsp;21.XII.1879 – 5.III.1953’ (Stalin’s dates of birth and death).<br>Kaschenko hospital. 1979. Stomach.<br>The owner of the tattoo had been convicted for hooliganism twice. He was an alcoholic going by the nicknames ‘Banka-Satan’, ‘Fool’ or ‘Cosack’. After much prevarication, he ‘surrendered’ to the hospital at Kaschenko, to avoid serious complications.
