These are mine and my boyfriend’s unintentionally matching tattoos, both on our wrists. Mine is the small one on the right, his is the left. He’s in the Navy and is based in the Middle East for a year. They keep us anchored to each other whilst we’re living over three thousand miles away from one another.
Eva (México) “A cross, not as a religious symbol, as a symbol of faith in me and what I do, and the people who support me.”
Antonella (Italy) “This is my first tattoo, 6 birds representing my family: my dad and my granmother -sadly passed away- my mom, my brother and my two nephews. Birds connecting heaven and (h)earth.”
Varja (Skopje) “The anchor represents my passion for traveling and my wish to eventually settle (cast my anchor) once I find the perfect place/person.”
This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for my soul hebrews 6:9. This anchor reminds me to always have hope.
Karoline (Oslo) “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. Always be the stronger version of yourself, so you can rise above the bad times and enjoy the good times.”
Felix (Linz, Austria) “This is my first tattoo. It took my quite a while to decide on this anchor-motive. I probably only did it because a friend dragged me along to the studio spontaneously…I don’t regret it at all!”
Emi (Sault Sainte Marie) “Rats = artistic ability Banksy = favourite artist Wrist = to show ill never harm myself again.”
One of the three tattoos that I have. I got this and one more on my 18th birthday in august. This is absolutely my favorite, i just love anchors and it remembers me to always hold on.
Emelie (Umeå) “My first tattoo.”
Francesca (Milan) “harry potter is forever. I can not explain what binds me to him, perhaps because it’s really something magical, but I think it’s the only one that deserves to stay in my skin. Forever.”
Anna (Baden, Switzerland) “Stands for something strong, something which has its place but its still changing due to the water thats coming and going also it stands for a certain balance in my life, a reminder who I want to be”
Faith, Love And Hope. These words mean life to me.
Karoline (Fredrikstad) “Always follow your heart. This is my first tattoo and I got it at NY Ink/Wooster Street Social Club this summer.”
Anna (Uddevalla, Sweden) “my first tattoo, I love it”- http://www.nattstad.se/AnnaAlfredsson
