Con Safos is a Chicano slang phrase used to express respect and solidarity among members of the Chicano culture. It can be found in many forms of Chicano artwork, including tattoos. The literal translation of Con Safos is “with respect,” and it is often used as a sign of respect to those around the speaker. The phrase is often used to signify any show of solidarity or loyalty to those in the same cultural circle, whether it’s amongst families, gangs, or any other Chicano based groups. For some, getting a Con Safos tattoo is a recognition of the importance of the Chicano culture, and serves as a reminder of the strength that can come from collective identity.
