ABOUT THE DESIGN:
On the front is the slogan : "Zhivu Greshno, Umru Smeshno" which roughly translates to "I live in sin, I'll die with laughter".
In the middle is the mini MIR Skull, inspired by Russian Criminal Tattoos. This type of skull with the hammer and sickle was meant to be an accurate representation of Soviet Russia.
On the back of the shirt is the cathedral with 2 cupid tattoos. Cathedrals were tattooed in Russian prison culture to specify the number of years one has spent in prison or the number of convictions he or she has. The domes or crosses can each stand for 1 year or 5 years or 1 conviction. Each time a man would get convicted or do time, he would tattoo another dome onto the cathedral. There is also another meaning for tattooing the cathedral. It means that your body and your soul is your church and you will never let anyone desecrate it in any way. Which is the meaning I had in mind when making this design.
