A Look at Racist Skinhead Symbols and Tattoos

Insignias and tattos of the racist skinhead underground

Editor's note: Although white supremacists and other extremists commonly use the Celtic cross and the runic alphabet, these symbols are also frequently used by non-racists. Many non-racist neo-Pagans, for instance, have runic tattoos but have no relation to racist groups or beliefs.
