Gang Member Tattoos Murder Scene on his Body then GETS CAUGHT

November 11, 2012


This short clip talks about how a gang member tattooed a scene of a murder on his chest. More importantly, we can see how the criminal represents a connection between crime and art in a way that is unlike typical art/crime connections. For example, the tattoo on his chest is not only an artistic tattoo of a criminal endeavor but also allows the gang member to relive his crime. In addition, the tattoo can be seen as a way of using art to obtain recognition and a higher status with a gang or group. Interestingly, the art is not a crime itself but the art depicts a real crime scene. 

Next time he might want to consider waiting until after he is caught and convicted before getting such a tattoo.
