It means many things some of the definitions are: You killed a someone depending on the amount of people you have put in the dirt you can add teardrops on. a friend, family member, gang member or someone you like has died. It could also mean you spent time in jail. It can also mean you were in a gang when you got the tattoo. It can also mean this person has sorrow and suffering in their lives. However it has become a sort of fad.
