Tattoos have a long history for sailors and sea going men. A tale once told by sailors was “Pigs and Chickens will make shore”.
This was widely regarded true— as the pigs and chickens on board a sea going vessel tended to be crated and would float to shore in the misfortune of a shipwreck. It was also known—Pigs and Chickens dislike of water was such they wanted badly to make land.
and so it was said by sailors– and often Tattoo’d
A Pig on the knee– will keep you safe at sea
A Cock on your right– you’ll never lose a fight
