ATC member with red lips tattoo on neck

Postby @1 » November 16th, 2012, 5:35 pm

I have noticed the Red Lips tattoo on many neck, both gang members and non-gang members, but recently I heard that it meant Sureno. I had never heard that before. Does anyone know?

I was watching a court case last week downtown LA and this one guy has the same tattoo, but he only had the lips on one side, and an LAPD officer said that it meant Sureno. I never heard that before.

U can tell when they are Sur lips and a imprint, I have seen tatts before where the lips make a 13, but you can tell on this cat those a actual lips.

Kenyon Martin has some type of Lip Tatoo on his neck. It may be a fad for some and have a meaning for others. It's almost like the Tear drop from the eye, it may hae multiple meanings.

From what I remember does it mean "13". I remember that from a Gangland video about Sureños, or some like that. It was made because of all the arrests of their gang affiliated tats, so the lips were made like the numbers "13" to prevent of getting busted because of that.

this must be new if it is true, that red lips is some way representing Sureno, Sur or 13. Is this true, because I heard a cop testify to this in court and I though he may have been wrong.

This Mexican guy named one of his kids "Alize" which is tattooed under his neck. You know he was hanging out with the brothers to decide to name his daughter that, or maybe his baby momma is black,

according to this person on Oct 30, 2013

Many meanings have been attributed to this tattoo: the 13th letter of the alphabet, "M" representing Eme or the Mexican Mafia; a symbol of having killed someone; a symbol of "the last kiss before dying" -- in honor of a wife or girlfriend left behind while a man is incarcerated.

I would be careful with this tattoo. It could be a gang tattoo representing "13" or it could just a tattoo that someone thinks makes them look cool.

I would take it into consideration with the other info you have on the subject because again, this appearing in your backyard might have a different meaning that it does in someone else's backyard.

Be safe ...

the placa probably said it's a sureno thing because he saw the rest fo the tacas on that dude and just asumed it was so

but yeah, those lips are a personal mark from the most dearest ladie(s) in his life, same like the child's hand print, like someone posted before me. Add to the whole canvas the words that read "mi querido julio" and you can begin to get a more detailed picture of what he's thowing on his body all around together with the indian folklore

I agree with AztecNinja..some people get lips that actually form at 13 and also happen to look like lips but not in this case, they're just regular lips which could mean whatever he wants them to mean.
