Gang Tattoos Around The World

#1 Women In Barrio 18: Gang M-18


Women in the M-18 street gangs of Central America: Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador serve a dual role. They take on "male" traits in perpetrating and withstanding violence, while performing in the stereotypical "female" roles of cooking, caring for the men, children and the sick. In some ways, one might say they're tougher than the men, and getting a tat on the face that shows a gang affiliation, proves just that!
