*Note this is not my tattoo, but I have actually considered something like this later. I think it is too intimidating.
During my shift that I was never scheduled to work a regular customer came in and he had an anchor on his shirt. I have a huge admiration for anchors.
I find that they represent a lot of things. This person’s tattoo symbolizes Hope. Faith and Love. That is important to me. But in general anchors are thrown into the water that is to hold the boat. That means no matter how rough or how stormy it is, you are strong enough to handle anything that comes your way. It offers stability.
It could also be a symbol to represent a loved one where you have been through a lot together. But no matter what tomorrow brings you will still stand by their side because you deeply care about them to not leave.
