This Brief studies the important role that tattoos play in prison culture, & examines its unique manifestation among minority inmates. This work aims to provide a better underst&ing of prison group culture, particularly among social marginal groups, through the lens of Russian immigrants in Israeli prisons. Russian immigrants currently represent approximately 25% of the total Israeli prison population, & this book examines how tattoos show an important form of rebellion amongst this group. As tattoos are forbidden in some forms of Islam & Judaism, & the Israeli prison service confiscates over 200 homemade tattoo devices per year, this is a significant phenomenon both before & during incarceration. This work examines how despite the transition to Israel, the main social codes of Russian prisoners are still dominant & help segregate this group from the larger prison population. It provides a lens to underst& Russian criminal activity in Israel, & in a larger context, the modes of social cohesion & criminal activity of organized crime groups operating in prison systems. This work will be of interest to researchers studying the organized crime & the criminal justice system, Russian organized crime in particular, as well as related studies of immigration, demography, & social cohesion.
