Russian Prison Tattoos and their meaning

The title pretty much says it. I thought this site was very interesting.

"The tattoos are painfully applied with needles and electric shavers, using ink made from urine, soot, and shampoo. Infection from the procedure is frequent, and death not uncommon."

I used to date a girl who had a tattoo of a butterfly in the small of her back. It wasn't made from urine, though.

Due to it being a Russian production, you can download it for free on any P2P client.

not sure if you guys know, but there are tatoos that having meaning like those shown in that link in prisons here.

ie- tear drop (near the eyes) = 1 year served

not sure what the rest are.

not sure if urine is used, but pen ink is used along with a fan motor.
