The tattoos have their origin from the seas as the sailors were the first people who inscribed tattoos on their bodies and helped in spreading them around the world when they were on their voyages. In the earlier days, the voyages were full of dangers as the extreme weather used to be the obstacles, the pirates used to sink the ships and rob the belongings of the voyagers and there were many other factors which affected the safe and smooth sea-voyages. The tattoos represent various meanings for various people. Initially the ship tattoos used to be inscribed on the body of those who are related to the oceans or seas but slowly ship tattoos get popularity among the others and they started to have those on their bodies just for having a different look. The ship tattoos could be the images of the passenger ship or could be the pirate ships. The ship tattoos generally look elegant when they are drawn with black color but there are many who get the ship tattoos along with some other tattoos on their bodies and these are colorful ones. The ship tattoos generally depicts the free nature of a person and the desire of the person to be on the move always.
