the tear drop tattoo has had many different meanings. When they were first worn they meant that the wearer had been incarcerated and or killed someone while in or out of prison. As times have changed however, the teardrop has come to symbolize a friend or fellow gang member or family member that has died while the wearer is incarcerated.
Now however the teardrop seems to have become a fad, which granted has gotten people in trouble.
It has also been used as a gang identifier. If it was on the right it meant you were a Crip or part of the Folk Nation, on the left meant Blood or People's Nation.
tears have lots of meanings but the main is : catharsis, sadness, hidden pain or
finding solace / consolation.
Never you mind!
On the face to a gang member it means you've killed someone..
you've done bird.
One tear or many mean murder(s)... It's used in some gangs. Not a good tattoo to get, unless you like problems.
teardrop under the eye used to mean u were a killer...now, highschool kids all have them
...gang related...time done in prison....am wondering why you are asking, luscious36ds?
...yes, the tear drop reflects the sadness of it all, doesn't it? I have been teaching for 19 years (8th grade) & two former students are in prison...one is out now & came to visit...once you are my student, I will always love you...can't help it...so sad though the path different people take.
I've heard different things. Either the loss of someone close to you or you served jail time. I'm not sure if either of those are correct though.
Time to find a better tattoo artist!
