This person’s traditional anchor tattoo features a funky-looking anchor inked in blue, red and yellow, with the horizontal portion of the “cross” inked to look like a piece of wood with two pieces of rope wrapped around it. The cool anchor tattoo is relatively large and is inked on the back of this person’s lower leg. While most anchor tattoos are symmetrical designs with sharp edges, this leg tattoo is sort of knobby and asymmetrical, which makes it even more distinctive. There are a variety of possible anchor tattoo meanings in this case, including staying grounded, a safe return home or simply a love of the sea.
