THE ANCHOR SYMBOL
The anchor is used at sea to keep vessels stationary and safe when not sailing and stop them being swept away by the wind or the current.
So the anchor symbolises safety, stability and steadiness, representing our unwavering side, which enables us to keep calm and clear-headed even at the toughest times of our life.
As a tattoo it also stands for the strongest of ties: trust, love for one's family and faith, where the anchor shows you have been saved from a spiritual shipwreck.
