Other common symbols incorporated in Aryan Brotherhood tattoos are Nazi influenced such as the SS Bolts which were originally used by the German special police, prison and concentration camp guards during WWII.

The other, called the Parteiadler (Nazi party eagle) could denote prison time served by the member or a family member that has committed a crime for the greater good of the movement.

Both symbols have been banned in Germany and may also be illegal in Austria, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Brazil, Russia and others.
