Tattoo Tuesday - Nautical
Nautical tattoos have been around since the early 17th century. Sailors were notorious for displaying such tattoos that represent myths and fantasies in relation to the sea. It is said that people who have nautical tattoos are often as mysterious and as vast as the ocean. The most popular type of nautical tattoo is the nautical star, which was used to guide lost sailors in the night. Other types include tattoos with the underlying theme of aquatics, boating, navigation, sea creatures, mermaids, ships, etc. Being that I LOVE the ocean, I find this theme to be of interest. I could definitely use a couple days on the beach right about now...
