The world’s oddest gang sign – shaved eyebrows.

Bob Geldof from the west side!

When you think of gang signs you probably think of tattoos and/or flashed hand symbols, maybe even wearing certain colors, but they’ve taken it to the next level…so to speak.  In Portland, Oregon a new trend has emerged – shaving lines in your eyebrows.

While butchered eyebrows used to be the exclusive domain of elderly women who have plucked them beyond the point of recovery or drunks who got too close attempting to light a cigarette off a stove, it is exclusive no more.  Gangs in Portland have taken to shaving vertical lines in their eyebrows to differentiate themselves from, we can only guess, gangs that shave horizontal lines in their eyebrows. 

It’s gotten to the point that administrators at Centennial High School in Portland is sending with the lines students home until they shave their eyebrows off completely and grow them back normally.  Yeah, we know, just what society needs, gang members with a lot of free time on their hands. 

Coming next to Portland, the violent gang known as the Pink Floyds.
