Teardrop tattoos on the face have many traditional meanings, one of their symbolisms is that the wearer has been to prison. Sky Ferreira got hers on her finger in honor of rapper Lil Wayne when he was sent to jail from weapon possession in 2010. Lil Wayne himself has multiple teardrop tattoos on his face.
