People associate a lot of representations to pirate tattoos.
Pirates sailed the seas taking what they wanted and doing what they pleased.
In this way, a pirate tattoo represents freedom.
The pirate tattoo also symbolizes other traits like courage, bravery, deceit, unity, loyalty and wanderlust.
All these traits are qualities we think of when we think of a pirate.
The unity of the pirate crew and yet the deceitful and low character acts they would commit.
Things like stealing and murder are not admirable qualities.
But, the freedom of getting what you want and going where you want are things we associate with freedom.
