Reyed Pachuco Cross

Is the Reyed cross found between the thumb and forefinger common with younger eses nowadays.
Alot of Veteranos have them, but are younger
eses getting inked with this still.

Those of you who don't know, I'm talking about a tattoo of a cross with 3 rays extending from the top.

I don't know gangs in Cuba, but there is a Cuban prison/ streetgang.
The Marielitos. They were introduced originally to the u.s. after the Mariel Boatlift incident of 1980.
They grew within the Federal Pen. system and spilled onto the streets. You don't hear much about them, but they're around.
