This should not be confused with dropping anchor which would lower the anchor onto the sea floor. One thing that is not confusing is this painting. Nautical or traditional tattoo it’s a very cool painting to hang on any wall.
Four Anchors Tattoo Artwork
Christians adopted the anchor as a symbol of hope in the future because the anchor was regarded in ancient times as a symbol of safety. It kept us from drifting from the proper path. Much like an anchor is used on a ship. The anchor is dropped into the water and set to keep the boat from drifting away. It’s no surprise that the anchor quickly became a popular tattoo among Navy servicemen. At sea, the anchor is the most secure object in a sailor’s life. This makes it the perfect representation of stability. You will often see an anchor tattoo emblazoned with the word “mom” or a girlfriend’s name as these are the people who keep them grounded. When you’re out at sea for weeks or months on end, it’s no surprise that dry land is more preferable. The next best thing was an anchor tattoo on the arm. It served as a daily reminder to stay grounded. That the war would end soon. I think we could all use a little grounding now and then.
