Anchor Tattoos Designs, Ideas and Meaning
October 12th 2013
Anchor tattoos are one of the few tattoo designs that are increasing in popularity day by day. At one point of time, it was believed that anchor tattoos are only ideal for people who are closely associated with the sea, such as sailors and navy personnel. However, the times have changed and people from diverse backgrounds such as musicians, poets, athletes and even journalists are carrying these tattoos. Although at one time anchor tattoos were essentially associated with masculinity, they are now sported by the fairer sex as well. Anchor tattoos carry a wide range of meanings; they were often regarded in the past as a camouflaged Holy Cross. As an anchor is used to hold the ship in place, it is also associated with the qualities of strength, stability and endurance. Anchor tattoos can also be combined with a host of other symbols, such as those of rippling waves or flying birds.
The anchor tattoos presented in this site can be worn on any part of the body in a variety of color combinations.
