When the caravel was introduced by the Portuguese in the mid-15th century the world of sailing was forever changed. The sturdy yet agile ship allowed for greater journeys and opened up the entire sea for exploration. Tattooing and sailing have always gone hand in hand so it’s no surprise that the world-changing caravel would be the subject of many tattoos.
