4 Ways You can Rise Up After Being Sentenced to Jail or Prison

TOMS RIVER, NJ – You’re young, or not so young, you made a mistake, and now you’re waiting to be sentenced – where can you find out how to survive in prison? I’m going to give you here some tips that you should be aware of and carry out that will help you to be safer in your time of confinement. You are probably already too aware that prisoners can be abused, particularly if they are young, weak, and white. It will indeed be a harsh awakening for you if you have never been in prison before, have not had to make it on the streets, and have no street survival skills to call on. Most convicts are callous and toughened, so if you’re not used to holding your own with that sort of people, read on to get some pointers on survival.

Surviving Prison #1: Look into getting some tattoo work if you don’t already have some. If you’re still free before your sentencing, use the time to drop in at a tattoo parlor and get a couple. The right tattoos can give the impression that you’re a seasoned veteran and slightly reduce your risk of abuse by the other prisoners. I suggest that you get large black and white tattoos and avoid color. Tattoos that are colored in black and white are the best.

Surviving Prison #2: Keep quiet about any personal information. Don’t tell other prisoners what your crime is (particularly if it’s a sex offense), and do not tell anyone your address, your family members, or your close friends. Keep your outside life to yourself. Prison is not the place to boast about any money you have either, whether it’s from your job, your family, your wife, or your crime. That will only make other prisoners jealous, and some will take that as a reason to hurt you.

Surviving Prison #3: Use the time during lockdowns to do exercises such as sit-ups and push-ups to build yourself up, and do it every day. Because the truth is, if you are weak and out of condition, or small or fat, you will be badgered and ill-treated. So take any and every opportunity to do whatever exercises you can do in the confines of your cell. Prisons also have weight rooms, but these attract the macho men who parade their strength and want to prove their masculinity, so they have their own set of issues. It’s an environment where violence can and does break out.

Surviving Prison #4: If you are tested by another inmate who challenges you and bullies you, you must fight back. If he takes food from your tray in the dining room, fight him for it. It is a big sign of weakness if you back down and don’t defend yourself or your property. If one person bullies you with no resistance, there are twenty others watching who are ready and waiting to do the same thing or worse.


Surviving Prison #5: Don’t be a Dick and don’t break the law.  Don’t steal from people, don’t con people and don’t stiff people out of money.  Don’t try to get Rich off the misfortunes of others.
