Photos of Los Angeles' Street Gangs (47 pics)

This is a very interesting project titled L.A Cultura that was documented by photographer Andres Herren. Although the gangsters in LA are responsible for much of the violence there, they do live by a code that includes loyalty, honesty, and love. They also like tattoos, a lot.

    Some very cool pics, the photographer has managed to make these guys look unassuming and reasonably normal even though they are heavily inked and probably borderline psychotic.

    The guy with the dog, 43-46, is ok in my books. His pooch looks well cared for.

    They should all be exterminated for being a drain on society.

    Really wise move to tattoo yourself, if you're going to do crimes for living. Maybe they subconsciously want to be caught and punished?
