    Your chances are very low. That's an MS13 tattoo. Whatever it may or may not mean to you, it is gang-related.

        I initially thought it looked like a tattoo for the Bloods - dog paws made up of three dots....but you are right too.

        Lance 13A makes a valid point, even though this tattoo is sometimes innocent in meaning (such as it meaning the holy trinity) it is ALSO a well known gang affilitation tattoo.

          I know a couple of hispanic Drill Sergeants that would spot your tattoo a mile away and eat your lunch.

          The original three dot represents a gang member gangbanging with each other as equals. Adding two more dots represents a gangster who earn the right to command others or a senior gang member known as an "OG", original gangster. One surrounded by others in protection. As a Sureņo (gang) symbol, the tattoo is worn between thumb and forefinger because it is believed to be harder to remove. The Sureņo gang number is thirteen, using Arabic or Roman numerals, or a combination of both: 13, XIII, or X3. This signifies the 13th letter of the alphabet, the letter M, meaning "La Eme" or "The M"; the Mexican Mafia.

          Numerals are also incorporated into the tattoos, such as Tres Puntos ("Three dots") or X3, which is the representation for the number 13 within the Aztec numeral system. This may explain the origins of the tattoo amongst Hispanic gang members. However, along with the pachuco cross, the three dots is also a popular "generic" tattoo among Hispanic teenagers with no gang involvement whatsoever.

          This is also popular in German prisons among current and former convicts as a symbol of their time done behind bars. Generally it implies the person does not know, see or hear anything and has therefore no information for the police. This tattoo also usually appears on the skin between the thumb and forefinger. Also for some groups it means 'I hate cops.'

          In France, the dots stand for 'Mort Aux Vaches', literally 'Death to cows', in slang 'Death to cops'. It can also be interpreted as '**** the World'. In Greece, the three dots in a triangle signify affiliation with anarchist beliefs/ideals (The three dots can be seen as points of the letter "A", the symbol for many anarchists around the world). The three dots in a triangle are also used as a protective symbol for hobos, sailors, and convicts, known as "hobo dots." Among sailors it's a traditional tattoo to get on their first voyage.

          The three dots in a triangle are also used widely in the southeast region of Turkey as a symbol of being one of the tribesmen. The three dot symbol is known as "Gormem, Duymam, Soylemem" meaning that "I hear nothing, I see nothing and I tell nothing". Bearing this mark is an oath to the person's own society, and requires great responsibility such as being willing to sacrifice himself in favor of the society.

              Because I thought it was nicer than saying 'push your ish in.'

                My work experience with the Alabama Juvenile Department of Corrections is my source.

                I'm presuming from your original post you were already aware of the connotations that tattoo has, so why are you questioning me about sources? If you ask a question, you get an answer. Don't whine when the answer you get isn't the answer you were hoping for.

                  Without even getting into the intricate details, you basically could have stopped right there. The Air Force (to which the Air Guard belongs) is very VERY selective when it comes to tattoos, probably moreso than any other service. Don't know if it's official policy or anything, but I saw an Air Guard recruiter flat out tell an applicant that they wouldn't take anyone with ANY tattoos that showed outside of their Class B uniform. So if it wasn't hidden by your clothing, no go.

                    Would tattooing an eye ball on my eye lids be acceptable? It's very hard to stay awake during class room instruction during OCS.

                          OPie,

                          You should just go to your local recruiting office and you will know ASAP if your tattoo is acceptable.

                            That's called sarcasm. You're learning how to fit in.
