The world of tattoos has always been in constant connection with the sea, and sailors are great fans of this world. That is why it is not strange to see that many symbols of life on the high seas tattooed. Today I will explain to you what a rose of the winds is, what is its design and what its meaning is. And who knows? Maybe you tattoo one.
Wind rose tattoo
For those who do not know it, a rose of the wind is a symbol in the form of a circle that has marked around the directions in which the circumference of the horizon is divided. Within this circle is a star that can have four, eight, sixteen or thirty-two points depending on whether it only points to the four cardinal points, north, south, east and west. Add the eight collateral courses or the sixteen co-collateral courses.
In addition, the rose of the winds symbolizes the course in its maximum expression. When the tools to cross the sea were very rudimentary, this was the only tool that allowed for the seas to float, so it is not surprising that it was associated with adventure, freedom and guidance.
This rose is placed in the maps to mark where you should go, this being its function next to the one of the compass. It is a great symbol for those who have the idea of staying on the right path. The roses of the winds, in the end, are guides and help us stay focused on the right path, whatever happens, continuing on the right path.
These are just some examples that the design can look great tattooed.
