What does the 4 dot tattoo mean?

A four-dot tattoo on the hand, particularly on the knuckles, generally denotes that the person has been incarcerated for four years. Tattoos with three or five dots are also connected with criminals and the prison system.

The four-dot tattoo symbolizes life in prison. If you see this tattoo on someone's hand, they have been incarcerated for a long time and likely will be for some more time to come.

In addition to being in jail for four years, people who get four-dot tattoos on their hands also often receive them in the other areas of their body as well. The most common places to find these tattoos are on the back of the neck, across the chest, and down the leg.

People get four-dot tattoos for many different reasons. Some do it to mark the time they have been in prison until now. Others may want to show how long they have been addicted to drugs or drinking. Still others may simply like the look of these tattoos. No matter the reason, those who have them usually don't plan to leave prison anytime soon.

If you see a four-dot tattoo on anyone's hand, let them know that they are already in prison and cannot leave until at least four years have passed.

What do the five dots on the outside of a prison tattoo mean?

The five dots, sometimes known as a quincunx, represent the time spent in prison. This is a global tattoo that is widespread among European and American convicts. The four dots on the outside represent the four walls of the jail, while the dot in the middle represents the convict. This symbol was originally used by pirates to indicate that a person was awaiting trial.

There are different theories about how this tattoo came into existence. Some say it's based on the Bibles interpretation of Psalms 68:18 ("Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business on great waters"). According to them, the five dots symbolize the five continents on which mankind can trade. Others claim that it originates from prison registration numbers. They say that when you put these numbers together (2005) it makes 20 years, which according to them is the maximum sentence for crime in many countries.

This tattoo has become very popular lately. Maybe that's why I saw so many pictures of people with five-dots tattoos on social media.

In conclusion, the five dots tattoo means 20 years in prison. It's usually seen on criminals who got sentenced for long periods of time.

What does it mean to have three dots on your face?

Having said that, the three-dot tattoo is commonly seen as a jail tat, particularly when it is drawn on the owner's face. That doesn't imply you should think the individual is a member of a gang, but it is the most usual interpretation. The three dots are used to indicate that the wearer has not been convicted of a crime.

The reason why this type of tattoo is considered a bad idea is because it can be taken as a sign of unwillingness to report or fail to report when asked by police officers. Given that tattoos are visible for all to see, this means that an individual could be sent home without charge or arrested without proof of identity if they are not reported by someone who knows them well.

This type of tattoo is usually covered by a skin-colored inking or colored pencil and is done by professionals who know how to avoid drawing attention to itself.

The three dots tattoo is common among people who belong to criminal organizations such as gangs, but it isn't limited to them. It is also known to be done as a joke by people who want to offend others, such as soldiers or policemen.

In general, having a three dot tattoo is considered a bad idea because it can be interpreted as a sign of criminality or unwillingness to report crimes. This means that an individual might not get the protection of the law if they are caught with this tattoo.

There are two main methods used for putting a tattoo on the skin: piercing and carving. With piercings, the tattoo artist uses a needle to insert the ink into the skin. This is done by making small holes in the skin and then inserting small posts called "taps" into each hole. These taps hold the ink under the skin and provide a place for blood to clot around them so that they do not move around on the body.

Some individuals also tattoo pictures and motifs on their knuckles, frequently in groups of four, such as the four symbols on a deck of playing cards that represent good luck.

Knuckle tattoos are often done in conjunction with other body art and sometimes include the name "Jesus" or some other statement. They are commonly found in California, among gang members. Knuckle tattoos are often done in black ink and show up well against dark skin tones.

There are several languages around the world in which the finger and hand are important elements in symbolism and meaning. The English alphabet has 26 characters, so there are enough letters to go around for everyone who speaks our language.

This is especially common among athletes who may want to mark their fingers with words like "team," "honor," and "love."

The words used in knuckle tattoos are generally short phrases or single words.
