Tattoos appeared from ancient times many years ago, at that time tattoos were like a familiar “jewelry” for the gypsy world.
In countries around the world, in a recent documentary, mafia bosses revealed the meaning of their body tattoos. Among them are some stories that haunt many people.
Former members of the notorious criminal organization have told about their path to the “underworld”, along with stories associated with curious tattoos.
Talking about the tattoos on her body, Aprea Ciro (63 years old) announced that she joined the gang to save herself: “I did something bad, so I was forced to join the gang to save myself.”
He said he grew up in an area ruled by the New Organized Camorra and that he “forced” to join the gang.
Tattoos on people are meant to let others know their position in the gang. “My ministry symbol is the little cross on my right finger,” says Ciro.
Another mafia boss also has the gang’s name tattooed on his body. Explaining this tattoo, the man said:
“Tattoos are important, each tattoo has its own meaning and place in the gang for each person.
For example, ACE Bastoni means tycoon, or another popular tattoo is the eyes on the shoulder or the word ACAB on the foot. I have a tattoo of Nuova Camorra Organizzata on my body because I believe in this organization.”
It is the tattoos that haunt him to this day by his daily troubles.
“I had to cover my whole body because everyone avoids people with tattoos. We were discriminated against and treated like monsters,” the former mafia boss shared.
Moreover, he also felt like he was being watched and subjected to a lot of criticism from society. Partly because these tattoos show that he was in prison, they are quite different from the modern day tattoos that are just for beauty.
Not only mafia bosses, there is also a tattoo of the word “Ring” in Vietnam that no one does not know in the Gypsy world, and this used to be the throne of notorious bosses.
No one knew that this popular tattoo had such an illustrious past. It can even be said that this was once an affirmation of the power of the underworld.
In the past, people considered tattoos as a sign to identify seniors and sisters in the Gypsy world, moreover, just daring to tattoo the word “Ring” was able to claim the title of king.
The essay on the word “ring”, above has a set of “knife”, below has a set of “heart”, acting roughly is the power and danger hidden in the heart. The bearer of the word “ring” in the underworld must be a notorious senior No. 1, braver than people, recognized by those with a role in the Gypsy.
