As far as I know, it represents somebody you loved who died /was killed. Its a display of mourning/remembrance.

Yep. Thats what it means to some asian gangs as well. Mourning/remembrance/eventual revenge.

This is the first time EVER when I hear that you can tattoo a tear drop underneath your eye just because you've got shot or someone you know have been killed. Amazing.

Here where I'm living tear drop tattoo is stritcly for the people who have killed someone. Two of my old friends have that tattoo as a mark of a killing.

Other places in US I guess..? Because like I said atleast here in Finland tattoo tear is only for the people who have killed someone. No exceptions on that. It would be interesting to know how it is in other european countries... for example in UK. Or in Germany... or especially in Denmark (which has a solid biker-gang culture). Anyone has any info about those countries?

In England it represents either you have been in borstal(young offenders institutes), prison or that you've killed someone.

You got 1 Tear = you killed 1 man (and so on)
My boy Cisco got 5 small tears on the right side, right side means men, left side means women.

I beieve you are absolutely right,,, I have not ever heard it any other way.
If someone I cared about died, a teardrop would not do justice for tattoo to represent them... not by a longshot.

The big hommies told me some shit like that also. They said that an outline tear means you've lost some one and a shaded in tear means you've killed someone
