ABOUT THE DESIGN:
Cathedrals were tattooed in Russian prison culture to specify the number of years one has spent in prison or the number of convictions he or she has. The domes or crosses can each stand for 1 year or 5 years or 1 conviction. Each time a man would get convicted or do time, he would tattoo another dome onto the cathedral. There is also another meaning for tattooing the cathedral. It means that your body and your soul is your church and you will never let anyone desecrate it in any way. Which is the meaning I had in mind when making this design.
Each T-shirt also has the "MIR"logo on the back. The MIR Hand logo is inspired by an old pick-pockets tattoo. "MIR" is the Russian word for "peace", but in the criminal world it's an acronym that stands for "Menya Ispravit Rastrel" which translates roughly to "Execution will Reform Me".
You can create your own Russian Criminal Tattoo shirt.
