Is it illegal to have 4 dots tattooed on knuckles ?

Recommended Posts

I saw what I think was an old ex skinhead on Saturday with tattoos everywhere, on his right hand he had 4 very obvious 'dots' on his knuckles, I mentioned this to one of my mates in the pub and he told me what they meant and that they were illegal, does anyone know if this is true ? What they meant I mean and are they illegal or was he pulling my plonker ??

No idea what they're supposed to mean, but surely it can't be illegal to have a tattoo??

Most tattoo artists won't do hands these days anyway...

The 4 dots mean the same thing as another acronym often seen tatooed as "ACAB".

 

That stands for "All Coppers Are ********", and the dots on the knuckles basically represent the same sentiment.

There's a bloke in sheffield with ACAB tattooed on his forehead - so cannot see anyone being too bothered about a few dots.

I wonder if he has problems with members of the public trying to flag him down on a Saturday night?

Suppose it depends on his hearing and if he is in the multicultural quarter of the city.

The bloke with ACAB tattooed on his forehead doesn't have much of a problem, so if he doesn't then I can't imagine that anyone with the dots would have an issue.

 

He's rather a nice chap BTW, and is the first to volunteer help anytime you need it :)

Do you have to rub the dots off to see the letters like you do on a scratchcard?.

i think All & Are would fit on ok, just the other two you'd need deformed knuckles to fit it on
