The compass is a very popular maritime tattoo, stemming as far back as the early age of sailing, when mariners navigated their way through uncharted waters  armed only with the stars at night, a compass to point North and their own wits to guide them.  The Spanish conquistadors were the first sailors to utilize such tattoos centuries ago, because the ocean was a scary place, and a compass was their good luck symbol.


Today, sailors and explorers do not need to rely as much on the compass and stars , but it still stands strong as a symbol of luck and protection.  The compass symbol represents finding direction—the followings of dreams and never losing sight of the course.
