If you believe that hopes shall never die, and that there is always a last resort in stormy weather, an anchor tattoo can give a definition to your belief. Anchor also symbolizes firmness, peace and strength. It can represent your determination and passion to reach the shore despite obstacles.
For women, anchor tattoo could mean that they have a dominating and unchanging personality. However, traditional history of anchor tattoos can be traced back to early sailors, who wore it to represent invulnerability and achievement. Creative options are limited with anchor pieces as the symbol needs to be recognized. You can still add images, scrolls, flowers or vines to make it exclusive.
