ABOUT THE DESIGN:
The Owl design was first tattooed around the early 40's. The slogan "Got mit Uns" is german for "God with Us" and is a "grin" at the Soviet Administration which outlawed religion and God. This tattoo also represented freedom, and authority.

On the shoulders are two cat tattoos which can symbolize luck for a person that needs luck in his/her line of work. The Cat is also a symbol of thieves. There are many different meanings for cat tattoos.

On the back is the MIR Eagle logo. This type of Eagle was a powerful anti-establishment and anti-administration symbol during the 50's and 60'. In Russian prison subculture, German symbolism was usually meant to show disdain for the system and the government. 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".

You can create your own Russian Criminal Tattoo shirt.
