A long time ago, it was believed that anchor tattoos belonged on those who worked in businesses associated with the sea. That could mean sailors, seamen, navy personnel and others who worked in the deep blue seas and sailed on the beautiful and mighty oceans. Recently, the scene has changed and now the anchor tattoo has gained quite a bit of popularity. In fact, the anchor tattoo is no longer always associated with the seafarers.
People in the rock scene have begun to add their own flavor and design to this tattoo and are doing so with a great deal of enthusiasm! It has also become the design of choice with the fairer sex and it looks pretty awesome. It’s also grown in popularity among the Christian circles as a symbol of strength and stability. Lots of missionaries can be found around the world with a small anchor inscribed on their wrist, behind their ear and on their ankle.
