      FYI people- the ''crown' tattoo on females is a PIMP BRAND. If you see a female with one it means she is 'owned' by a PIMP

      You have to be very careful when playing with crown tats. 5 points means Latin Kings gang of mexico or cuba whereas 6 points is Satan's Disciples gang and 3 Latin Kings of Puerto Rican heritage.

      Gypsy, thanks for dropping by my dear. You make a good point. I have met a few in my lifetime, more then you would think actually. Usually, it is a daddy's girl, the rightful princess. They forget the symbol of the crown is power with compassion, justified power.
