I want a nautical tattoo :)

I am thinking about getting a tattoo. It will be my first.

Thinking about a small monocolor (flag blue) "nautical" symbol on my inner right wrist; May be at the southwest of the pulse 2.5 inches away. Not too obvious, since I am in a conservative career. I like a small, cute, intelligent, non threatening tat, but it makes a statement.

Anyone have any cool idea or suggested symbols?

Makes a statement? How about the anchor of your choice?

Oh rocdawg, you do not want something small and cute, you need to get something that makes a statement.

Maybe these will give you the right idea.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

You meant the "tadpoles landing zone" tats. If it is done right, it is good visual and hot. I dig it
