Teardrop Tattoos

The teardrop tattoo or tear tattoo is a symbolic tattoo that is placed underneath the eye. The tattoo has several connotations. Teardrop tattoos usually signify the loss of a friend or loved one. The different kinds and their meanings are:
  • An empty tear signifies that the loved one has been killed
  • That the bearer has successfully murder/shot someone.


  • A filled tattoo signifies that a loved one has taken his or her own life, or was killed by a cause other than murder (car crash, death penalty, etc.)[citation needed]

  • A tear with an empty top and a full bottom means that the wearer has avenged the murder of a loved one.


  • A tear with no filling also means that a person or individual has done at least a year of time in prison or county jail.[
The majority of the 'tear tattoos' seen in popular culture today, however, signify that the wearer has killed. The number of tears usually represents the number of

killings, although that was not the original meaning of tear tattoos.[1]

It is a tattoo that is almost always associated with prison tattoos and membership in a gang. Tear tattoos, when given in prison, are primarily to indicate that the bearer has murdered someone, either in or out of jail.[1][2][3] The tattoo can also be given to commemorate a loved one who died while the wearer was incarcerated.[2] Also a teardrop can be given for every five straight years of hard time a person has done in prison.

Answerer/Response: Well here's what the teardrop tattoo means:

1) You've killed someone
2) Family, friend, or gang member who has passed away
3) Gang identifier (Right side means Crip or part of Folk Nation. Left, Blood or People's Nation)
So basically, it's really more gang related.. so I would get something else that's small.
