Russian Criminal Tattoos

The dagger through the neck shows that the prisoner committed murder while in prison, and that he is available to ‘hire’ for further murders.

The bells on the feet indicate that he served his time in full (‘to the bell’), the manacles on the ankles mean that the sentences were over five years. ‘Ring’ tattoos on the fingers show the status of the criminal when the rest of his body is covered. The ‘thieves’ stars’ on the knees carry the symbolic meaning ‘I will not kneel before the police’.
