In prison, inmate politics exist and South Side is one of the gangs that is represented by these politics. South Side can be represented by either South Side, the number 13, Sur Trece, or Sureño. Generally South Side tattoos represent sort of a ¨rank¨ given to that person for his contributions and the ¨work¨ he has done for the Mexican Mafia in the United States. Some tattoos can only be used by the top ranks in the gang. If you use a South Side tattoo and it was not given to you, it can result in a ¨test¨or even death.
