We all know that rowers are among some of the most dedicated athletes out there; willingly sacrificing the weekend sleep-ins to hit the water at it’s calmest, pushing themselves through gruelling sessions on the ergs in training as well as the countless blisters, aches and pains that come with it.
This level of dedication is not to be taken lightly, however we feel these athletes have taken their devotion to a whole new level!
Below is a selection of some of the most interesting rowing-themed tattoos we could find from around the world.

Live to Row – Row to Live
A great big 8 – I wonder what hurts more? Rowing continuous power 10s or getting this done?
A simple pair
The level of detail in this classic Oar tattoo is remarkable!
A nice simple Single Scull
Finally we have a tattoo themed poem, courtesy of Hear the Boat Sing.
