Hold Fast Tattoo Navy Shirt
The Hold Fast Navy Shirt displays time honored traditions and nautical history. The term Hold Fast has meant a variety of things over centuries and there are reasons why this 2 worded sentence is intrinsic to the daily lives of United States Navy Sailors. Hold Fast is associated with the Clan MacLeod of Scotland, where it meant to stand one’s ground but in sea going terms it means the opposite. In its most present terms it means to stop whatever it is you are doing. It could be at the sign of an enemy warship on the horizon, a sudden gust of wind or a drowning sea ready to capsize the vessel.
For those who have lived before the mast it is the perfect number of characters, 8, the perfect candidate for a tattoo across your knuckles. Tattoos like the rigging of a ship symbolic of surviving Cape Horn, a Hulu girl for travels to and around Hawaii, swallows for ungodly lengths of time at sea, pineapples for Tahiti and of course Hold Fast are among the most famous of nautical tats.
