Anyone would like to go to sea, navigate day and night with no other protection than the designs of the sea, with no other direction than the wind to mark. Having a love in each port, a company that will be your family for months … It is, of course, a very romantic idea of the trades related to the sea and, surely, anyone who plays it could give us a less pleasant idea , harder and more real … or not. If your life is on dry land, it doesn’t matter. Take it out by getting a tattoo with nautical motifs. Below, we offer you some suggestions through news and compilations of our own articles.
Options are all those that represent motifs or tools related to the sea and navigation. You can go from the simplest to the most elaborate and everything would give good results if we choose a beautiful design. Less is more with The rose of the windsFor example, you can find it in more complex or more austere versions, in a larger or smaller size. It is used to study the direction from which the wind blows (and which will receive a specific name depending on it) or to study the speed at which it blows.
Knots are also a very seaworthy thing, as we have already mentioned. It has a most transcendental meaning if we understand it, for example, as the Celts understood it, which attributed a meaning of eternal life. A knot is the point where two strings or two parts of the same string meet, intertwine. A rope that spins as our life spins, that meets us with others or with more or less strong ties.
As for more marine motifs that we have already told you about, at the time we dedicated an extensive article to the anchors, you can search if it is the design you are looking for. The anchor is a very marine element but, at the same time, it is what keeps the boat tied to the land, which “prevents” it from going out to sea. Or that it protects you from inclement tides, helping you not to drift. We all have an anchor in our lives, be it family, religious beliefs or ideology. It allows a multitude of options, in its small and austere version, transformed or as an element of a composition.
As for boats, we find some famous ones whose history would deserve a tattoo. The classic example is that of Titanic, which set sail from the United Kingdom to North America, a destination it never reached, leaving hundreds of souls on the way. The unsinkable, they told him. Once again, nature proved itself superior to the self-centered and humble human mind. It was the largest ship ever built, but its size was not enough when it hit the iceberg that sank it in the middle of the Atlantic.
They were more successful the Pinta, the Girl and the Santa María, the caravels that did manage to sail the Atlantic in 1492 under Christopher to discover The New World and its treasures. A milestone for the history of Spain and Europe that is not understood as a success among many South Americans, of course … Queen Anne’s RevengeFor its part, it is the name given by the pirate Blackbeard to the French ship that he captured and used to board as many ships in the waters of the Caribbean Sea, until he got a better one and left him stranded on a sandbar.
The sailor has also inspired fashion, giving it a navy that never falls, combined with white or even red for accessories. It is normal that she is also more than settled in the tattoo studios.
