    That's a Nazi eagle with the swastika blacked out. I wonder if he was killed as retaliation for leaving a gang.

    I think that one with the flames is supposed to be a flaming eye of some kind?
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    This is exactly what it is. Reef and life preserver...please.

    I can't really make out what the other tattoo graphic is. The quality is poor. Looks like the sun and earth to me?

    The block lettered tattoo looks like it says USM to me.

    Salton City is a really weird place with so many visitors and transients.

    Agree on the nazi tattoo. USN would be US Navy, right? I wonder if they're prison tats, in which case his prints should have been on file.

    We don't know that he was killed though. I don't see a cause of death listed.

    That estimated date of death in Namus has to be wrong. It can't be 2000 to 2002. He was found in 2002, has a recognizable face, and had been dead for "hours".

    I think they mean "wreath." Some people, Mr. Carbuff included, mispronounce some th's as f and vice versa. Very annoying.

    I think so too. I can see the wreath. But if you google "nazi eagle tattoo" you find a lot of very similar images, but with a swastika where the "life preserver" is on his tat.
