The origin of the anchor tattoo dates back to 2000-2500 BC. Meanwhile, sailors were the only ones who used the tattoo as a symbol of their lifestyle, profession and passion. But even people who have nothing to do with the navy, the sea or sailors choose anchor tattoos.
Anchor tattoos are becoming increasingly popular, not only with men but also with women. No wonder it has become a common tattoo design today. One of the reasons for its growing popularity is that the design is relatively simple yet fashionable. In fact, many women use anchor tattoos to add color to their bodies simply because they are fashionable and stylish.
Anchor tattoos are not only fascinating because of their appearance, but also because of their deep meaning. Over the years, the meaning of anchor tattoos has changed. The earliest anchor tattoos were found mostly on the arms of sailors. These tattoos are a source of motivation for them to fight the sea. Often sailors are separated by storms and when they meet again, they can easily recognize each other by their anchor tattoos.
When the anchor tattoo became popular, it appeared only on sailors and people who spent a lot of time at sea. These sailors tattooed anchors on their bodies because they are the symbol that accompanies them throughout their journey and gives them a sense of stability. Although they travel often, they are always tied to one place.
