So you know my parents are the most loving parents ever, but when the conversation arises about certain things, they grew up with the notion that tattoo is a tag in prison. So you know you belong to a gang or you are a gang member. We grew up in a different society obviously and moving to the US everything became a little different. We Americanized alot faster. Our Dad transformed himself to this lifestyle, Mom was kinda…Mom is taking longer” - Maks (X)
