8 Point Compass Rose


8 Point Compass Rose

Compass rose tattoos have been around for hundreds of years. For most of that time, this design was the domain of sailors who wore their tats for a number of reasons. Among the most prominent, seamen believed that a compass rose tat would bring them good luck and ensure that they made it back to shore alive.
I stole this information, but it really fits well for me. I'm in the water/ocean constantly, and I love the nautical symbols. As an old Navy guy I really like the meanings.
