Description

This enamel pin references a pen-and-ink and watercolor design for a tattoo in The Met collection. Created by Clark & Sellers (American, active 20th century) circa 1900–45, the original drawing features an anchor decorated with a rose, a heart, clovers, and thistles. Tattoos became popular among Western sailors who voyaged to the South Pacific, where the practice is a ritual art form (the word "tattoo" is derived from the Tahitian tatau). The anchor became a favored tattoo design as a symbol of stability and protection from drowning.
