 I was just watching Eastern Promises and the tattoos that Viggo Mortensen (Don't remember his character's name) had on the inside of his shoulders (the stars) are ALMOST identical to the ones that Alexander Emelianenko has in the same place.  

In the movie I believe that these are given to captains in the Russian mafia.  I obvoiusly have no background in this sort of stuff but was wondering if anyone could give an explaination if this was true or not.

the dude is a profighter, so you already dont want to mess with him, but no one gets tattoos like that unless they've done some shit.

those arent some nautical star some oc punk ass kid gets.

Yep. Pretty much everyone in the MMA community found out what they meant by watching that movie. If I'm not mistaken, someone mentioned the similarities in an interview with him right after the movie came out and he more or less confirmed that that's what they were for.
