A teardrop tattoo has many stories related to its origin and its symbolism.

It is said that the teardrop tattoo originated in the Chicano gangs of California. According to some beliefs, a teardrop tattoo was inked on the individual when he had killed a person, particularly while in prison. A solid teardrop tattoo means that there was a murder committed, and if the tattoo has a clear middle, it was trying to murder and an empty teardrop symbolizes that a loved one has been murdered.
