Tattoos were once considered to be a special and rarity trend, and today tattoos are among the most popular and fashionable trends. Men as well as women are struck by different tattoo motifs in all sorts of variations and styles, and for some, this is often a "never-ending story", an infectious passion that is perceived as real art. It is not for nothing that body art is spoken about and tattoo artists have long since been seen as true artists.

Anker Tattoo motifs are on the rise again
The anchor - just an old school tattoo? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! Anchor Tattoo motifs are definitely making a comeback and are very popular with many people as a tattoo in all sorts of variants and at the most different body parts. This timeless combination of trident and cross, formerly considered a symbol of the Seafarers' Guild, is now generally perceived as a symbol of hope and eternal fidelity. In addition, the anchor is home and return, which not only used to be so important to sailors in the past, but has not lost relevance even today.
Anker Tattoo is already back in fashion
The anchor provides the ship with a firm hold not only in the safe harbor, but also on the high seas, digging itself into the seabed. So he should also offer a stop in the figurative sense in life and give his wearers strength and stability. A newer meaning of the anchor tattoo is to be the symbol of everlasting love.
Or it is said: Two twin souls have found each other and want to stay together forever and ever. This gives the anchor a rather romantic aftertaste and is often stung as a partner tattoo.
The anchor - a versatile and flexible tattoo motif
Hardly any other tattoo motif is as versatile and easy to combine as the anchor. It can be wonderful in all possible styles and on all parts of the body outstanding. Quite delicate with fine lines or in dotwork, with soft shades, classic in blackwork or colorful and three-dimensional - an anchor tattoo always looks particularly cool and meaningful. In addition, it can be perfectly combined with other motifs and symbols. The most preferred are hearts, sailing ships, ropes, steering wheels, lighthouses, waves and stars. Not infrequently, such a tattoo is also provided with a lettering on which a popular life wisdom or a valuable name stands.
