Here we have a resurgence in some classic Navy Tattoos.
I am lucky enough to Tattoo alot of Navy guys and especially divers.
Here the symbolism is that in the old days when ships would cary livestock on deck , if the ship went down the livestock would float as they were in wooden creates , so a sailor would swim towards such and hang on .
Thanks to the guys for allowing me in on this and to Micheal Barnes for starting the ball rolling . He was responsible for stylizing his to suit the divers .
Stay safe guys and respect.
