Another Reason Not to Get a Tattoo of Your Local Liquor Store
- 25-year-old gang member Anthony Garcia spent years adding detail to the drawing of a Pico Rivera liquor store on his chest, including a loop of Christmas fairy lights strung along the ceiling and the bowed street lamp and sign across the way. But this is no body art homage to a favoured alcohol purveyor.
nstead, Garcia’s drawing commemorates a murder scene, complete with a prone Mr. Peanut-figure, riddled with bullets. According to Robert Faturechi, who covered the bizarre story in the Los Angeles Times, “in gang slang, the word ‘peanut’ is used to derisively describe a rival gang member.”
