ABOUT THE DESIGN:
The Owl design was first tattooed around the early 40's and usually meant that that the wearer was a burglar or a safe-cracker, hence the crowbar and keys. Owls are also creatures of the night which also relates to the wearers of these tattoos.
The fly on the back is a nod to a Russian fairy tale character Muxa Tsikatuha. A fly tattoo usually represented a pickpocket but could also be for good luck, like the scarab or beetle tattoo. The spade suit is a trumps suit and is respected among the thieves.
Each shirt also has the "MIR" logo on the sleeve. "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".
