It's not his fault, the skull is mandatory if you want to be taken seriously. I didn't want to get my skull tattoo when I first got into homicide, but now I wear it with pride. The fact that he already has his is proof that she's already a target, assuming he's good at what he does.

I get questioned about my heartagram tattoo alllll the time! It's like "are you a devil worshiper?" or "is that satanic?" WHY YES, YES IT IS, you jackass. Some people are just ignorant.

92, People not being aware of the significance of your tattoo doesn't really mean they're jackasses. They're asking the question, not yelling and screaming that you're a heathen, so who cares? Some people won't have seen it before. Personally, I just think its unoriginal.

OP, you need to explain to your mother that these days skull tattoos just mean your husband got really drunk one night and did something stupid. Whether that was get a tattoo or murder someone would be open to interpretation...

Hey downtime, quit being an ass. I didn't ask you for your opinion, I simply made a generic statement on the ignorance of people in general. No need for your 2 cents, I have my own. Thanks!!!

What can I say, I'm just a generous charitible individual. I offered my two cents because I knew that the value of yours in comparison was negligible. A thankyou would have been nice but hey, some people just don't like charity and I get that. Just know, theres more where that came from.
By the way, not recognising the logo for a band is ignorance by definition, but not all ignorance is bad. Your lack of understanding and common sense however...


Yeah tear drops, skulls and other things are a language among gang members. The key is that they are done as prison tats, not as professional ones. The number of prison tats also speaks to others how long/how often they've been incarcerated.

Actually there are two different tear drops... One represents your confirmed kill and the other represents the loss of a family(gang) member. Closed tear drop and opened tear drop.

Is she religious? lol

3, my parents are ministers and have heaps of tattoos. Religion isn't always the culprit, some people are just quick to make assumptions about a person's character strictly based on appearances.

Too much lifetime tv for Op's mom, perhaps?
Maybe he was a punk when he was younger.... If you share her paranoia, by all means investigate, though it does sound like she's jumping into conclusions....or has some other ulterior motive.

Heck, I have a hard enough time dealing with people saying I'm ruining gods work by putting the abomination of butterflies on my ankle. I feel bad for OP's hubby. :( I hope he takes the criticism ok and still loves his tattoo!

And to answer the "why" does he have a skull. Some people like those things. And some people get tattoos the mark a certain event or memorable moment in their life. All mine have a reason and in 40 years when they are wrinkly I can look at them and know who I was and what I was thinking.

Maybe your mom is right. Do you want to have her engrave "I told you so" on your tombstone? If he's not a murderer, he's just a poseur pirate, which is almost worse!

Oh he is most definitely a murderer. The tattoo says so. That's almost as bad as my grandmother. She's convinced that every man in America with a shaved head is racist and wants to rape me.


My mother is convinced that my nose piercing is some kind of indication of homosexuality, like the "left ear" piercing for dudes in the '90s.
I have yet to tell her I'm bisexual. I'm afraid she'll break out the holy water.
