#6 Five Dots Tattoo

This tattoo may seem like a pretty design, but the meaning behind it, is much darker. The five dots tattoo (also known as the quincunx), symbolizes the amount of time spent in prison. The four outside dots stand for the prison walls and the dot in the middle represents the prisoner. This tattoo is internationally known and worn by both American and European inmates. The quincunx is typically found on the inmate hand between their thumb and forefinger.
