Most members who become affiliated with Little Shanghai Boyz most likely become designated with tattoos. Each tattoo is usually earned when certain tasks, respect or trust is given to an individual. Each tattoo signifies each members importance to the crew, the more tattoos they earn the more respect they will gain.
No Tattoo/Rank 0 (Lookout): This is basically when affiliated outsiders get trusted and initiated into the crew as a trial member, if they prove worthy enough they will move onto becoming a street rat where they will be more trusted and respected.
Tattoo/Rank 1 (Street Rat): The most familiar kind of member found within the organization, noticeable by the first tattoo all members gain are two Chinese symbols that represent the individual's "Obedience" and "Respect" they have now obtained throughout the street crew. This tattoo is the most common and will be found on every official member initiated within Little Shanghai Boyz.
Tattoo/Rank 2 (Street Soldier): Street Soldiers mainly consist of trusted Street Rats that have advanced up into a more reliable position. They are nothing but the common soldiery of the crew, usually handle most of the dirty work. All Street Soldiers will be initiated with the intitials "LSB" somewhere on their body, the most common position is on the chest region or stomach.
Tattoo/Rank 3 (Street Captain): Street Captains are given detailed Chinese Sleeve tattoos to signify their importance to the crew. Yet they aren't anything big but they usually harness all the new bloods and corrupt their mentality.
Tattoo/Rank 4 (Vanguard): Vanguards keep the streets clean, specifically their territory under control, and set tasks for the younger generation to complete. Vanguards are highly respected members who will gain a Dragon or Demonic looking creature somewhere on their body, the tattoo is quite large and it is usually applied on the torso area.
Tattoo/Rank 5 (Triad): At this stage, members who get this far have either proved theirselves worthy, or given a lot of commitment towards the organization to the point where they have been given the chance to rise high as a respected "Triad".
Tattoo/Rank 6 (Triad Boss): Triad Bosses are the one's who take direct orders from the Dragon Head, their word is law and they should not be questioned ever. Triad Bosses are the future heads of the organization if the Dragon Head was to be removed from his place. At this point no tattoo is necessary to be assigned to their body as their position is highly respected.
Tattoo/Rank 7 (Dragon Head) Dragon Heads control the whole organization and all the operations, they basically sit back as the Triad Bosses represent themselves as their speakers and messengers.

possibly 1-2 more once I get their confirmation
I've lead several factions during my time on SZR, unfortunately not many of them were so successful that lasted a short period of time due to my lack of effort. I've lead a Triad faction before and it consisted a lot of role play while it lasted, I'm confident with such a theme like this and the role play standards will stay quite high with this one as I am feeling particularly dedicated. Also seeing SZR is now apparently a "roleplay" server, I guess this will sort of fit in.
