Tattoos have been traditionally associated with criminals and sailors. An amalgamation of both i.e. the pirates, the sea criminals who looted other ships and lived life on their own terms, are also a famous tattoo design. Pirate tattoos symbolize free spirit and strong will. They represent the fearless attitude of the marauders and are carved in various shades and images. The most popular among them is the pirate ship. The official carrier of the criminals is painted mostly with the jolly Roger. Jolley Roger refers to the flag of the pirates.
Other images include the sea birds and animals along with other things associated with the sea life. The pin up wench or the consort of the pirates is also a hit with the pirate tattoo lovers. Her sexy and saucy avatar is quite charming and liked by people a lot. Apart from this, the famous movie “Pirates of the Caribbean“, based on the life of the pirates has a huge lot of admirers.
