Teardrop Tattoo

Teardrop Tattoo

Undoubtedly, a teardrop tattoo involves some sort of criminal activity. The side of the face, the outline of the tear, and the number of teardrops all change the meaning of teardrop tattoos. Artists rarely ink teardrop tattoos. Instead, you normally find people in prison or friends with connections to tattoo them. The negative connotation of a teardrop tattoo usually keeps anyone wise from choosing one for themselves. At the same time, some teardrop tattoos bear an innocuous meaning of solidarity. Asking someone the meaning of their teardrop tattoo proves difficult, so let’s take a step back and go over all the different details behind these designs!

 

Teardrop Under Left Eye Meaning

What does a teardrop on the left side mean? Originally—for both sides—the teardrop denoted a prisoner that someone else in jail ‘owned.’ Placed next to the eyes by their ‘owners,’ hiding it proved difficult and it told everyone else about the pain, tears, and humiliation they faced. Many of these prisoners dealt with rape, extortion, and physical abuse. The amount of care and protection available to them in jail simply fell short of what they needed. Outside of prison, these men told others that they received it for killing a man in prison.

 

Over time, the left side tear drop meaning changed from ‘owned’ to ‘I killed someone in jail.’ The number of tears denotes how many people died. The teardrop on left eye meaning remains a jail tattoo and continues to grow in popularity among gangs. Sometimes, a left-side teardrop tattoo meant they belonged to Blood or People’s Nation.

 

Right Side Tear Drop Meaning

After a while, the teardrop under right eye meaning gradually branched off from the original and perceived meaning of teardrop tattoos. These tears represent a lost gang member or family member. Gangs represent a second family to their members, and the death of one of their cohorts means the death of a brother or sister. When you see multiple tears on the side of someone’s face, it more likely means they lost many people dear to them, rather than that they murdered many people.

 

 

In particular, women tattoo this teardrop to show solidarity with their spouse in jail. Of course, husbands can do the same. On the other hand, these tears on the right side could also mean that you belong to the Crips. In the end, tear tattoo meaning changes with time, and quite honestly, the meaning behind them is personal.

 

 

After learning the teardrop tattoo meaning, you understand a little about story behind them and their status as jail tattoos. However, I want to go on a tangent and talk a little bit about finding a tear tattoo. When you see someone with a teardrop tattoo, avoid making assumptions based on their appearance. Every person places a unique meaning on their tattoo, and that includes teardrop tattoos—meaning that a teardrop tattoo doesn’t automatically make someone a criminal or a murderer. Anyways, to learn the true meaning of a teardrop tattoo, ask the person who wears it. People love telling the stories behind their tattoos, and teardrops certainly hide a deep story!

Miley Cyrus Tattoos And The Story Behind Them

How many tattoos does Miley Cyrus have, in the first place? Thirty-eight, it turns out! After starring in a few films as a child, Miley Cyrus hit it big with the series Hannah Montana. Despite her on-screen popularity, many people know her as a singer. The show launched her into a musical career, where she dominates the charts as an influential and top-ranking female singer. Today, let’s talk all about Miley Cyrus tattoos, their meanings, and the story behind them!

See it?

Here are some more Dreamcatcher Tattoos for you!

Do they tell a story?

 

Miley Cyrus Tattoos: Wings

First, I want to dispel a myth of the tattoo world. In June of 2013, a photo showing a nude women with a striking resemblance to Miley Cyrus went viral. The woman wore two wing tattoos on her butt. Since this occurred shortly after a break-up with Liam Hemsworth, celebrity journalists everywhere posited that the image exacted revenge of some sort. Miley Cyrus went on to say she inked no such tattoos, and the image showed someone else—which represents the truth!

Miley Cyrus Finger Tattoos

Despite the stigma around finger tattoos, Miley Cyrus wears them with pride! Ink fills her fingers with small, sticker-like tattoo work. She currently wears an eye, a heart, an alien, a cross, a peace sign, and once, even a tongue! The two dashes on her fingers represent equality. The word ‘BAD’ pays tribute to Michael Jackson. She ended up covering the tongue with a delightful watermelon tattoo.

 

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus Matching Tattoos

During their engagement, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus inked multiple matching tattoos. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth matching tattoos continue to pique our interest. A sugar skull tattoo rests on their ankles, and you can learn more about the meaning behind them in our Day of the Dead Tattoos feature. Along with that, they both wear tattoo quotes from a Theodore Roosevelt speech. The quotes directly follow each other and talk about victory and defeat. Someone who lives life experiences victory and defeat, while someone who lives safely experiences neither.

 

Tattoos can fade when exposed to the sun! Make sure you protect your skin and especially your ink when you enjoy the great days outside. Below is our favorite tattoo sunscreen product. Read our full reviews here!

More Miley Cyrus Tattoos

Of course, with dozens of tattoos on her body, we still need to cover quite a few meanings! I gathered my favorites to show you.

  • Miley Cyrus Tattoos: VIIXCI – As much as we want to know, this tattoo’s meaning remains hidden. Miley Cyrus never revealed its true meaning. The roman numerals make up gibberish, unless you separate them into different numbers. It could represent 5/2/1991, 6/1/1991, or 7/1991. All these dates take place before she entered the world, so I bet they represent her parents’ marriage or meeting.
  • Miley Cyrus Tattoos: Vegemite – After spending tons of time with Hemsworth, Cyrus learned the wonders of Vegemite, and inked a retro vegemite tattoo on her left arm. However, the tattoo probably represents Hemsworth’s love of vegemite, rather than her own.
  • Miley Cyrus Tattoos: Dog – The death of her beloved Klee Kai dog devastated Cyrus. She inked a tattoo in honor of the dog, named Floyd, to remember him forever.

 

Check out the rest of our images for all the Miley Cyrus tattoos. Of course, we thank her parents for raising her in a home accepting of the tattoo world. Cyrus continues to show the world that even famous celebrities appreciate the world of tattoos. With any luck, maybe one day we can wear short-sleeved shirts at work!
