Anchor tattoo drawing with dagger and barbed wire
Anchor tattoos date back to the 1900s, when sailors got the images inked on their bodies as a symbol of their safe return home. Today, anchor tattoos have become a popular trend for both women and men, and neither the design nor the meaning of an anchor tattoo has changed much. This anchor tattoo design features a traditional anchor inked primarily in yellow and red, with the vertical part of the anchor kind of resembling a sword. There is a red diamond to the right of the anchor, and the tattoo design also includes a piece of black barbed wire that entwines the anchor. There is a big difference between masculine and feminine anchor tattoos, and this tattoo design looks like it is meant to be inked on the arm or leg of a tough guy.
