So I Have a few tats and was wondering who had the coolest mma tats....here is one of my favs....post yours as well.......
Yeah Aleks definitely has the best tattoos in MMA.
If you ever watched Eastern promises the main guy in the movie has 2 stars on his shoulders which is supposed to mean he is high in the Russian mob, Aleks has the same tattoo.
Here's what his tattoos mean according to Wiki:
* Right arm: Cathedral with five domes: symbolizes five years of imprisonment.
* Shoulders: Stars: Symbolize a "career criminal" or Vor v Zakone in Russian (english translation: thief in law).
* Right shoulder: cobweb: Aleksander did not explain its meaning other than saying that contrary to what has been suggested by some, it does not have anything to do with the mafia. In Russian prisons, tattoos using this symbol typically denote drug addiction.
* Left shoulder: Russian script.
* Left forearm: Half cat’s head, half skull: “Homo homini lupus est.” Translated: Man is a wolf to his fellow-man.
* Back: Grim Reaper holding a baby
* Back: "Gott Mit Uns", meaning “God is with us” in German: for Aleksander, it’s a symbol of revival. This tattoo caused a significant controversy, since this slogan was written on belt buckles of German soldiers in the Second and Third Reich.
* Knees: Stars: symbolize that the owner will never be brought to his knees.
* Pirate tattoo: stands for article 167 of Russian Criminal Code: “armed robbery”.
* “Fortune favors the bold” in German: self-explanatory.
* A name on his lower abs (Maybe 'Marina'). Later covered by a tribal tattoo
