65 Boat tattoos (and their meaning)

If for some reason you can't have fun at sea or go on long voyages on the ocean, the most immediate solution to this serious problem is a boat tattoo.

Because this type of images engraved in ink on the skin will allow you to imagine everything you could do (even if for the moment, it is impossible) if you were sailing in often calm waters but sometimes dangerous.

In addition, boat tattoos are among the favorite tattoos of tattoo studio clients. There is such a wide range of designs to choose from that it might take hours to consult the catalogs.

Sailboats, cruisers and even pirate ships. Each of these boats is a great option when it comes to capturing these beautiful boats from a very long time ago.

The main symbols

We can talk about symbols, because boat tattoos have a series of meanings that everyone would like to know. So be careful to soak up the theme.

1. Survival of a long but fun adventure

Without a doubt, one of the worst crossings that a sailor can make is that of Cabo Hondo, which is why, once this trip is over, he can get a tattoo with a boat all sails out. This has become sort of code between browsers.

2. New adventures

The tattoos of boats with large unfolded sails are also particularly appreciated by sailors before starting a voyage. Those who did not have them and were sure of traveling soon were looking for the best tattoo artists to do the job.

3. Happy return home

What does a sailor on an adventure want the most? Go home safe and sound. This is why the tattoos of some boats are accompanied by the famous phrase "homeward bound" which, in French, means: "back home".

4. Lucky boats

Sailors used amulets to attract luck during the crossing. One of the most popular was the anchor, which was much in demand by the crew. But the actual boat tattoos were also considered exceptional amulets.

But the meanings that a sailor can give to boat tattoos are many. Anyway, there is no denying that they are impressive and pretty, which is why they are also chosen as designs for body designs by any amateur.
