Nautical Tattoos: Elizabeth from Pride of Baltimore II
Posted by Tall Ships America on September 15, 2009
Elizabeth aboard Pride of Baltimore II got her tattoo of a Pig and Rooster in May. Intertwined as mermaids and positioned in the middle of her back, she explains that the image signifies good luck and protection against drowning and shipwrecks. Since neither of these animals can swim, they would want to get the sailor back to shore as quickly as possible. It was done by artist Charlie Foos at Read Street Tattoo in Baltimore, MD.
