The show takes the viewer into the minds of members as they explain what the mysterious symbols decorating their bodies mean on the street, and mean to them personally. Initiation rites, turf wars, and the fierce pride of belonging to an outlaw family are all part of the territory. Tattoo artists and cultural experts explain the technique and history behind the ink and the groups it adorns, putting the personal experiences of the main characters into perspective.[3]
