This cryptic tattoo is gang code for "East Coast Crips." In this case "East Coast" does not refer to the Eastern seaboard. It means "east" of the 110 (Harbor Freeway), which runs north to south through Los Angeles. The tattoo depicts an "E" and a convoluted hand sign for "C." Incidentally, this gang was featured in Michael Jackson's "Beat It" video. PoliceMag.com gang specialist Richard Valdemar transported them to the set.
