According to Fedor's website via Wikipedia Aleks' tatoos:

Aleksander explained their meaning in his interview on Fedor’s official website[2].


Tattoos
Right arm: Cathedral with five domes: symbolizes five years of imprisonment.


Shoulders: Stars: Symbolize a "career criminal" or Vor v Zakone in Russian (english translation: thief in law).

Right shoulder: cobweb: Aleksander did not explain its meaning other than saying that contrary to what has been suggested by some, it does not have anything to do with the mafia. In Russian prisons, tattoos using this symbol typically denote drug addiction.

Left shoulder: Russian script.

Left forearm: Half cat’s head, half skull: “Homo homini lupus est.” Translated: Man is a wolf to his fellow-man.

Back: Grim Reaper holding a baby

Back: "Gott Mit Uns", meaning “God is with us” in German: for Aleksander, it’s a symbol of revival. This tattoo caused a significant controversy, since this slogan was written on belt buckles of German soldiers in the Second and Third Reich.

Knees: Stars: symbolize that the owner will never be brought to his knees.

Pirate tattoo: stands for article 167 of Russian Criminal Code: “armed robbery”.

“Fortune favors the bold” in German: self-explanatory.

A name on his lower abs (Maybe 'Marina'). Later covered by a tribal tattoo

Aleks is a bad dude. I mean he might be the scariest guy in MMA. I used to say that was Wanderlei but Aleks is so ******* beast. It's crazy if he had about half the skill of Fedor and his size he would be such a great fighter but Aleks is basically a wild brawler who can't beat top fighters.

He is good but just starting out

I dont think Aleks could be rated in the top 5 just yet , he has awesome potential and is incredibly quick for his size but he lacks expierence and to be honest true devotion.
He has a tendencie to come in a little out of shape for lower ranked apponnents , this is nothing got to do with his natural build but his fluctuating wieght.With almost a 20lb wieght deviation up and the down and then up again in his outings in Pride I think he may lack the disipline of his older brother.
He is definitly one to watch and i would love to see him in the ufc although i think he would loe again to crocop and Minatouro would definitly beat him I dont see many others getting the job done. My dream match for him at this stage would be Heath Hearing there both young and large and Aleks looping stand up v Heaths kick boxing would be great and Sambo v Wrestling is always entertaining and both have the lovely style of block the take down stand back up and take the guys head off ...

" YOU KNOCK OUT "

The mullet, grim reaper tattoo, and the way he fights makes him awesome.

I was just watching Aleks vs Thompson, Aleks KO's him in like 10 seconds. This was the funniest staredown I've ever seen.

Thompson is in his corner beating his chest and making sacry faces, while Aleks looks so friggin bored in his corner, he looks like he's thinking about what he's going to eat after the fight.

They get in the center and Thompson is looking all intense with his normal antics. Aleks still looks bored and actually picks his teeth an wipes something off his cheek all nonchalant.

Aleks looked like a stone cold killer.

Aye, Aleks looks like he just woke up. It's totally kick-ass.

Fav. Fighters
Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva

WAR The CroCop!

Normally, I would make fun of a dude carrying a man-purse and has a Cosby sweater on. But then I saw this picture:


I wouldn't make fun of that ^
Wow! That is a ****in' sweet picture




What a stud
