Anchor tattoos were all the rage for sailors. It was often the symbol of a very experienced sailor.
Anchor tattoo designs are one of the oldest types of tattoos. However with an interest in all things retro
and chic these have come back into fashion. In fact in the tattoo field as a whole retro tattoo designs
have been experiencing a resurgence. These retro tattoo designs have come back to life with new more
vibrant tattoo colors, designs and placements on the body. This trend originated on the west coast
mostly and has even become known as west coast tattoo style.
Retro themes in tattoo designs are especially popular with the rockabilly group.
So what is the symbolism behind the anchor tattoo design? While the earliest forms of an anchor being
used as a symbol harkens all the way back to the early Christians. They would often use the anchor as a
hidden symbol for the cross. This was often used to show that they were Christian while escaping
persecution from the Greeks.
The symbol much later became popular with sailors. This is a pretty obvious connection here being that
sailor use anchors constantly in their work.
The anchor tattoo design has become a symbol for stability and a strong foundation. It can also mean a
boyfriend, girlfriend or significant other in someone's life. You see a man might get an anchor tattoo to
show that his girlfriend is the stability in his life.
These have become increasingly popular for women to get and they often place them just below their
collar bone on the right of left side.
