Anchor Tattoo symbolism:

  • Heraldry symbolism: the anchor is the symbol of hope, fresh start and good luck. Furthermore, the anchor is related with the death of Pope Clement I. Tied by one type of anchor, Pope Clement I was thrown in the sea. He died at 99 years old. This is why some people get this type of tattoos to honor if someone died recently (like a family member or a good friend). Navy people also have this type of tattoos, along with sailors.
  • Meaning for couples: this is another way to show you have an wonderful relationship and you love each other. The anchor is a good tattoo for couples.
