Having a tear under your right eye typically symbolizes that the wearer has committed murder or a crime. That is why we often see this tattoo among people in jail. An unfilled teardrop, however, can also symbolize the death of a loved one, while an opaque one means that the death has been avenged. Unless you want it to symbolize the things we mentioned above, then it’s best not to get this tattoo. This tattoo can get you in trouble among criminals, as many believe you need to “deserve” every tattoo you get done.

Buddha symbolizes serenity and detachment, benevolence, enlightenment, and wisdom. Those are some great things to convey with your tattoo, which is why you may want to get it done. However, depicting God on your body in considered a form of blasphemy. Even though Buddha is not a God, but rather an extraordinary being, it’s still frowned upon. If you have such a tattoo and find yourself traveling to countries that practice Buddhism you can expect quite a bit of backlash from the locals who consider it disrespectful.

In the world of organized crime having a barbed wire tattoo usually means that the person has been convicted of a crime. Each spike on the wire symbolizes a year spent in prison. Such tattoos have been used as a secret symbol of the prison world for years. Once the inmates are released it was also a way to easily recognize others like them. So, if you have a barbed wire tattoo and haven’t spent any time in jail you will be sending the wrong message to any real criminals who may think you are one of them.

Five point crown
If you want to get a crown tattoo done, make sure you don’t have five points in it. A five point crown is a classic symbol of the Latin Kings gang which is one of the biggest Hispanic gangs in the USA. So, unless you have become a member of this famous gang, we don’t recommend going for this tattoo design. On the bright side, you can do any other crown design, as long as it doesn’t have five points.
