Upon completion of the Basic Membership Course (BMC), initiates


are tattooed
("marked") by Official Markers of the GUARDIANS. The new Brother or Sister is then known as a "marked" Guardian.

The tattooes are on the left and right hands - on the web between the thumb and forefinger - and on the lateral extremity of the upper right arm just below the shoulder.

The left hand markings signify region, the right hand signifies rank, while the shoulder markings detail region, batch and pseudonym.

A complete guide appears below:
