When you want to prevent your boat or other type of ocean vessel from drifting while in the water, you may want to use a metal vessel which is known as an anchor. This will work to prevent any type of sea craft you own from moving if you don’t want it to do so. This piece of equipment has been around for centuries and is known to be of great help to lovers of the sea. The anchor tattoo is symbolic of being in the marines or even having a love for water. This is a popular tattoo design that is thought to help you stay strong during the challenges of life. Men are more likely to get a tattoo of this type and it’s commonly chosen by sailors.
