The anchor tattoo has stood the test of time and still remains a popular maritime symbol. A long time favorite among seamen, the anchor is one of the oldest tattoo symbols.

Although the anchor is most commonly associated with sailors, it also has an association with Christianity. Christians actually used the anchor to replace the cross when they were a persecuted minority. When Christians were under Roman control, they spent most of their time hidden. Christians used the anchor to resemble the cross so there would be no sign of the religion and to signal other Christians in secret.
