Nautical Tattoos: Sam from Roseway

Posted by Tall Ships America on September 22, 2009

Sam’s cormorant tattoo was only 10 days old when we caught up with her on the Roseway back in May.  She picked the cormorant because she spent the last two years as a sailing instructor with Thompson Island Outward Bound where they would see the birds all the time.   Since the birds can swim and fly, she saw it as a metaphor for her life right now with motifs of water, flight and freedom.  The bird is pictured holding its wings out as it dries them after swimming because they do not have oil on their feathers and Sam liked how this made them look a little like dragons.

    Angel Wing Tattoo Designs are one of the most beautiful tattoos a person can have. They are also one of the most popular tattoos on the market. Not only because it represents prayer, but because of the meaning behind angel wing tattoos.
