Boat Tattoo

Why do people choose boats when it comes to tattoos?

Well, first of all boat tattoo designs can be funny and beautiful. If you look at our collection, in fact, you will find a combination of complicated drawings and colourful shapes. These are real masterpieces conceived and created by real artists. And talking about artists, if you decide to get your own boat tattoo, choose a good tattoo artist, someone you really trust. You will also need to be patient and remember: you will have a piece of art living on your skin!


Plus, boat tattoo designs can be the mirror of some our most hidden wishes. Have you ever stopped in the middle of the road, lost in a picture of a far-away land? Maybe it was an exotic paradise, an island in the middle of the ocean? Those who dream about crossing the ocean on a boat hide within themselves the spirit of the greatest adventurers. And what is an adventure if not the will to learn and discover something new?

The fact is that boats are truly a unique symbol of human curiosity. They are the material expression of the desire human feel to move beyond the known and into the unknown. For centuries boats have been the only bridge between us and the ocean, a terrifying, magical place where humans don’t belong. They are the key to enter a universe made of water and mystery.

Somehow, then, boat tattoo designs can be an original, artistic way to pay homage to human courage and curiosity, a way to connect with our subconscious will to explore, our desire to find new horizons beyond what we already know. Look at our pictures, find something you like, imagine yourself standing on your boat in the middle of the ocean: how does it feel? What do you smell? What do you see? Is there someone with you or you are alone with your courage?

It’s quite a journey, don’t you think?

  1. Did the author of the text preceding the pictures do ANY research into tattoos? Ship- and sea-themed tattoos are popular because of the history and traditions of tattooing.

    William Dampher is responsible for re-introducing tattooing to the west after it was banned in Europe and lost popularity. A sailor and explorer of the South Seas, in 1691 he brought to London a heavily tattooed Polynesian named Prince Giolo (the “Painted Prince”).

    In the late 1700s, Captain Cook made several trips to the South Pacific. The people of London welcomed his stories and were anxious to see the art and artifacts he brought back. Returning form one of this trips, he brought a heavily tattooed Polynesian named Omai. He was a sensation in London. Soon, the upper- class were getting small tattoos in discreet places. For a short time tattooing became a fad.

    Chatham Square in New York City was a seaport and entertainment center at the turn of the century. Samuel O’Reilly came from Boston and set up shop there, taking on an apprentice named Charlie Wagner. After O’Reily’s death in 1908, Wagner opened a supply business with Lew Alberts. Alberts had trained as a wallpaper designer and he transferred those skills to the design of tattoos.
