The anchors have been, for hundreds of years, an image widely used in tattoos, especially among sailors, which has made them one of the classic emblems when speaking of engravings on the skin. But of course, there is no need to work at sea to choose this image, and that is that its symbolism has been precisely what has allowed it to remain in force as a popular option at the time of tattooing.
Over time, however, the anchor symbol has acquired a different connotation, being adopted by many people all over the world, who have given them very different meanings and styles. If you love off beat designs and yet not want to experiment with something that may or may not suit your personality, an anchor tattoo is worth trying for. It can be done on arms, legs, neck, and shoulder and is apt for couples as well.
