Getting a gang tattoo is about as smart as getting your girlfriend's name tattooed on your arm. Like you're never going to break up. Only your new girlfriend won't shoot your over your old tattoo and you ex won't make you burn your old tattoo off with a blow torch
Another thing to consider is what you want to take pride in representing. Is selling crack or date rape drug really something to brag about? What about Otis Garret and Dave Picton? The Hells Angels deny everything and keep secrets from their own members. They only reveal things on a need to know basis.
Otis Garret was incarcerated for running a Hells Angels prostitution ring in San Fransisco. The woman who testified against him was murdered along with her twin seven year old daughters. There is nothing there to be proud of.
I know a guy who wears Big Red Machine support gear. I asked about them selling crack and he just said he didn't ask about that part of the business. That is bullshit. If you wear support gear you are telling the world that you support selling crack and date rape drug and you support what Otis Garret did because they own a brothel in Amsterdam and Otis is still honoured on Sonny Barger's web site.
To me wearing support gear is like wearing a T-shirt that says I support Clifford Olsen and getting a Hells Angels tattoo is like saying I support Dave Picton. Something they did but deny. Remember Piggy Palace.
