Some of the tshirts are awesome, but this was not the reason that made me post.

If anyone is following the latest season of 24 (Jack Bauer yeah), you'll notice that there are russian crime syndicates envolved, and when you are able to see some of those tattoos when they aren't wearing a shirt, for example, that one that symbolises how long you've been in jail. Just a note :)

Thanx.

Really? 24?

I gotta check that out. I guess since Eastern Promises and the books came out, its getting more attention.

The tattoo you're talking about is probably The Cathedrals:

Theres also another meaning for it. It means that your body is your church, temple, etc. U'll never let anyone desecrate it. Also it was an anti-authority and anti government kinda tattoo, because the soviets did away with religion and all that, so these guys would tattoo churches, saints, jesus, crosses, whole biblical scenes as a "grin" at the administration. Kinda like giving them the finger.

But youre right, the number of cuppolas can mean the number of convictions or yesr in prison.
