honestly i'd be afraid to get one under my eye cuz of gang relations and what not but i mean, if someone dear to me passed then sure why not, there is a guy that goes to the college in my class and has two under his eye, i wouldn't ask why quite yet cuz i barely started school so i'll find out later

Hey what is the true meaning of tear drop tattoos??? I heard that ppl get them because they lost someone, they served time in prison, they killed someone and regret it and because they sinned a lot....!! I don't really know.

I personally thought it was that you did time in the penn. I dunno, I just seen ppl who go to prison and when they come out they are all tatted up! Especially with that tear drop.

Four of my tios, two of my tias have teardrops under their eye because they went to prison and killed someone .

They have a tear for each person they've KILLED, not each loved one that's died. They all including my mom have a tattoo of my Uncle Ruben's name.

My mom has a tattoo on her hand from when she was locked up, it's of a moon, stars, and a tear. It's supposed to symbolize how you look at the sky and cry because you want to get out so bad.

But people can get a tattoo for whatever reason they want, that's just how they did it in my family. Oh yeah and they all are/were gangbangers with Texas Syndicate San Antonio STtreet Kings

I had always read that the teardrop tattoos meant you killed someone.

Hey Huero13 don't do it. Tejano, Pochita and Linda are all speaking truth.
A teardrop under your eye means "YOU KILLED SOMEBODY".

If you get locked up, you definetly will be called on it...then what?!

If cops stop you, you will be profiled and harrassed. And they'll probably stop you IF they see it.

Someone on the street here in L. A. (like an old krazy veterano) might call you on it; then after might decide to stomp on you for not knowing better.

And last but not least, any banger who sees it will assume you bang and.....well it aint a pretty picture; know what I mean?

Alrato Homie, do the right thing.

I got 3 under my left eye.

I don't hide them.

I never hide anything that is a part of me.

If I get harassed b/c of unos placazos,
it's the same as getting harrassed cuz of the color of my skin.

I sport them under my eye.

I don't hide them.

They are constant reminders of my sins from the past.

I carry the burden of be reminded every day
when I wake up and look in the mirror.

If another clicka takes it to heart in a different way...
Oh well, that's barrio life.

If another clicka takes it to heart in a differnt way...
I've seen vatos get wasted for wearing different color clothing.

I sport them under my eye...

Not for tears I've cried,
but for the pain I've inflicted on others.

But I don't regret my past.

We as humas are a product of our past.

If it wasn't for my past...
I wouldn't be who I am today.

Hey Huero 13,

Listen to tha Mexican, it's tru! Do what u feel it's right, if u want to get the teardrop then get it. Don't care what others think of you as long as your proud of yourself. Me entiendes? I would get one, but i would rather get one on my neck, i dont know if it would look right. But if u get a tat u get it so people can see it right? Not to hide it, then what would be the point of getting it.

personally I wouldn't get a tattoo under my eye, but I don't see anything wrong in doing it. I would most likey get a tattoo on my lower back or on the back of my neck or something.

ok my opinion on a teardrop as a tattoo is not a good thing to portray. Many people will define it as DEATH.. though there may be some people who get it as a sad expression. There are lots of bad judging people out there.. you dont need people misinterpreting things and saying "oh..look! that guy/girl has a teardrop under his/her eye.. I wonder who she/he killed... also many employers see tattoos as offensive or not classy so they will think twice before hiring you even if you have the skills. I like tattoos and who knows maybe in the long run i'll get one.. but definetly one that I can cover if necessary. To those who might say that they need a teardrop as a reminder of past hardships.... why would you want to submit yourself to that kind of torture.. of looking at yourself every single day and realizing "damn.. i got this teardrop as a symbol of what i went through" I honestly don't think that's a good thing.. but then again.. THAT'S MY OPINION!!!!

P.S. NO OFFENSE

i don't know about that, i would suggest holding out on the teardrop...or putting something else somewhere else not visible....cuz for future employment visiable tattoos send messages to stranger about what kind of person u are....just a suggestion tho

In regards as to not getting it done b/c of the type
of job I might get... I gotta be honest... I don't see
myself as being the type of vato working in some
bank, I ain't doctor material, and the only court room
experience I got is as a defendant... LOL. I ain't shooting
high and I ain't no college boy. Chale, I barely scrape
by with my GED. But, that don't mean I'm just gonna
cry at the bottom of the barrel either. So yes I do
wanna move up in this world. So far I'm in management
at the call center I work. Yeah... my boss's were iffy
about me and my style... but since they got to know me,
i'm pretty much trusted with anything there.


And about not putting myself through the torture...
I did things I ain't proud of. But if I try to ignore the
fact and get over it, it'd be almost like running from
my past. And sorry, I don't run. I face it. I know at
times the fight I'm in is a losing battle, but I ain't the
type that runs out.
