ABOUT THE DESIGN:
On the Front:
This eagle silhouette was tattooed mostly during the 30's and 40's and belongs to some of the earliest Russian Criminal tattoos. It symbolized strength and freedom It was very popular among the Thieves of that time.

The slogan below reads "Kazhdomu Svoyo" and translates to "To Each his/her Own" meaning everyone lives life by his/her own rules and values.

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.

On the back is the MIR Eagle logo. This Eagle was a powerful anti-establishment and anti-administration symbol during the 50's and 60'. The eagle conveys the message "Strike first, Dont wait for them to hit you!"
MIR is a Russian word for "world". But its an acronym for "Menya Ispravit Rastrel" meaning "Execution will Reform Me"
