The tattoo depicts a gun with a pistol grip and a bullet hole, with a black background, according to the complaint.
The complaint states that Moore also has a tattoo on his neck of a rifle and a shotgun.
According for a previous criminal complaint, Moore was a member of the Black Panther Party, the Nation of Islam, and the Black Liberation Army.
