    Though science has yet to prove our editor-conceived theory to be true, chances are, if you're a celebrity with tattoos, there's a high probability that an anchor is inked somewhere on your body. It's even more likely to be etched on your arm, specifically, your wrist. (Full disclosure: I happen to also have an anchor tattooed on my right wrist. I don't know why, since I am no celebrity, but, oh well.)
