Did you know In Australian prisons, teardrop tattoos are often forcibly given to convicted child molesters by other inmates. The tear drop represents the beating in life that the sick fuck will go through.

i only recently found this out (& i'm an Aussie) i think its rather disturbing, i've seen many people with the tear drop tattoo below there eye and it creeps me out a fair bit.

Instead of the american Tear tattoos, when given in prison they primarily indicate that the bearer has murdered someone, either in or out of jail.

don't believe me

i've always thought it meant you killed someone or have seen someone getting murdered.

In America it can also be a teardrop to represent the tear the would have cried for the death of a brother, not just murdering someone.

I know truckers will get tear drops tattoos under their eyes when someone they knew died while on a haul.

I know someone who spent 5 or so years in a Thai prison and has a teardrop tattoo.
