Anchor Tattoos – Stable and Sturdy

 

classic-sailors-tattoos43612480884655171Anchor tattoos have been around as long as their have been sailors.  For decades sailors who had completed their first Atlantic crossing would have an anchor tattoo.  They symbol of the anchor is that of steadfast and safe, keeping you anchored during bad winds, tides and weather.

For obvious reasons the anchor still remains very popular with sea fearers and the anchor tattoos of old have been replaced with intricate details as well as military and nautical emblems.  Other great nautical themes that sailors and fearers of the ocean will enjoy are nautical star tattoos, mermaid tattoos and sparrow tattoos.
