Anchor sign ⚓
This anchor sign is pretty weird and rare so i don't think that you have seen it in Facebook, or anywhere. But this sign has some interesting origins so I decided make an article for him. I'll show you how to type it by using different techniques depending on your Operating System and tastes.
What anchor means
The anchor is a symbol of a surface crossing (by boat or ship) of the Atlantic Ocean. But also anchor symbolism takes his origins from tattoos. Anchor tattoos were all the rage for sailors. It was often the symbol of a very experienced sailor. Anchor tattoo designs are one of the oldest types of tattoos. However with an interest in all things retro and chic these have come back into fashion. In fact in the tattoo field as a whole retro tattoo designs have been experiencing a resurgence. These retro tattoo designs have come back to life with new more vibrant tattoo colors, designs and placements on the body. This trend originated on the west coast mostly and has even become known as west coast tattoo style. Retro themes in tattoo designs are especially popular with the rockabilly group. It can also mean a boyfriend, girlfriend or significant other in someone's life.
