I noticed this too. Over the years when I have been too jury duty and made it upstairs...I have noticed the majority of the young low-lifes that are at the courthouse on official business (not jury duty) have someones name in cursive tattooed on their neck (both men and women)

But recently I noticed the cursive name on the neck being replaced with the spurs logo, but only on men.

I don't think these types worry about their image for employment or job interviews. All of us foot the bill for their section 8 housing and lone star cards.

I thought that maybe there is a supper club? Better get hooked on phonics. I could make your image appear more credible. We all are cheering the Spurs on, but just imagine a bunch of Lakers fans with sagging tattoos after the fall.

This has nothing to do with the topic of Spurs tattoos, but it has to do with the reply that they're misunderstood or negatively sterotyped. Years ago in the Navy (over 100 years ago), the average enlisted Sailor was very uneducated. Additionally, the only writing done on ships were logs and cartography for maps. So, when it came time to pay, the only way the Sailor had to identify themselves were through the unique tattoos they sported. The type and placement of tattoos obtained were an identifying feature. Just FYI.

Wow, a 6 year old thread revived...that might be a record!

And please use their correct name in San Antonio, which would be Tango Orejon!

“Tango Blast” (TB), is not so much a separate organization as it is an indication that the offender has participated in heightened criminal activity on behalf of the organization. The term “blasting” refers to involvement in violent or disruptive criminal behavior against other gang members or criminal justice personnel, particularly inside the Texas prison system.

What do you do when you see a woman (if I could classify them as such) when they have SPURS tattooed just above their breasts. Are you supposed to stare at it? Comment about it? Touch it? The "thing" even had kids. What a horrible trashy mother.

The tats from a local sports franchise can indicate which city the person is from while they are in prison. Prisoners from Dallas may have a Dallas Cowboys or Dallas Stars star. Likewise a person from Houston my have the Astros star. Again, all persons bearing this logo are not GMs.
I know a fellow officer with a spider-web tattoo placed on his elbow. The larger of this type of tattoo indicates the more prison time one has served. My fellow cop and friend has clearly not been to prison. Similarly a student with sagging pants is likely not committing "special favors"for other prisoners, it's just the origin of the act.
A gang tat distinguishes one and their gang. Gang members have all sorts of tats. So do regular folk.

Might as well declare tats as a gang thing.

My condolences. No volume of alcohol or bleach poured into your eyes can erase such a sight from your memory. You will be forever haunted...

Maybe she was just trying to divert her husband's attention from the tv?
