Some people find 18 troublesome.
And 17 would be highly inflammatory at a Sooners game.

1 == 4 in Iran, while itโ€™s a thumb up in the rest of the world.

31 is offensive in some areas bordering the Med., or so I am told. AIUI, it means "I throw at you".

It would be nice to see what Numbskull thinks may be offensive.

Both 3 and 18 (as mentioned by Uncwilly) imply that the recipient of the gesture is a cuckold.

In Azerbaijan it is usually accompanied by saying โ€œStones at your headโ€ which is a common insult.
ETA: BTW, in Azerbaijan just north of Iran, a Thumbs-up is a Thumbs-up.
ETA II: In Germany 31 reverse side in front of the face means nuts, which is the same as 2 pointing at ones head in the rest of the world.
ETA III: 17 is a common gesture by youngsters in selfies. Have no clue what it means.

17 is also a horns symbol, so signifying either the devil or cuckoldry.

I know 17 as a gesture in relation to surfers, mainly from the movies.
