MS-13 members pride themselves on their so-called body art.

An illegal immigrant M-13 (Mara Salvatrucha) gang member has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for what police called the most brutal machete slaying of a Virginian they have ever investigated.

Walter Antonio Argueta Amaya, 21, is one of four gang members who pleaded guilty to killing 24-year-old Marvin Joel Rivera Guevara, who was hacked to death with a knife in Albemarle County.

His badly mutilated body was found in Scottsville in July 2017 after he was said to have disrespected the MS-13 gang of which Amaya, of El Salvador, was a member.

Guevara was struck at least 144 times by the machete in an attack so violent and sustained that the handle of the knife broke off from the blade.

The Virginia Medical Examiner said he could not be identified by his family and DNA testing had to be used.

The group are said to have targeted Marvin after he told a colleague at a Charlottesville restaurant that the mob did not make the rules in America.

The MS-13 gang  was founded in Los Angeles in the 1980s and is known for using extreme violence to control territory and spread fear, The Daily Progress reports.

Its motto is ‘mata, roba, viola, control’ (Kill, steal, rape, control) and members are known for their distinctive tattoos, according to Newsweek.

Court records show Guevara went with another gang member, Juan Carlos Argueta, 19, to meet with women in July 2017.

When they arrived at Woolen Mills in in Scottsville they were met by Amaya and two others in the violent group, Jose Luis Escobar-Umana, 23, and Juan Carlos Zelaya, 19.

Escobar-Umana is then said to have forced Guevara to walk toward the creek at gunpoint before he was hit by the machete hundreds of times.

Amaya, an illegal alien (undocumented immigrant), now faces deportation on his release from prison after Guevara’s brutal slaying.

If he returns to the US he could serve 50 more years for violating his terms.
