Large traditional anchor tattoo on guy’s chest
Although feminine anchor tattoos are extremely popular these days, the traditional nautical symbol can also be found in many tattoo designs for men. This guy, for example, has a large anchor tattoo inked on the left side of his chest, with the anchor tilted slightly on its side instead of being inked straight on. The old school anchor tattoo is inked mostly in black and white, with red and yellow used as accent colors in the design. The nautical anchor tattoo is pretty large and the design is tattooed just above his heart. It’s possible that the location of this cool anchor tattoo has an impact on its meaning, and the ink could represent something that the wearer holds dear to his heart. In most cases, the meaning of an anchor tattoo symbolizes a safe port, returning home, true love or family.
