3. Ship and Compass

The reason why Harry got his ship:

“He only chose it after he arrived. He wanted a realistic looking English ship, because he misses home and needs to remind himself that he’s homeward bound.”

“What he said: We’re always on the road but my heart is at home and I want a ship.”

Also, Louis’ compass points to home

6. Anchor and Rope

Anchors symbolize stability, fidelity, security. Anchors have no purpose without a rope to be tied to.

It reminds me of something…

My hands, your hands, tied up like two ships. Drifting, weightless. Waves try to break it. I’d do anything to save it.”

7. Heart and Arrow

Harry’s human heart tattoo on February 24th and on March 9th Louis got an arrow. An arrow through a heart is classically symbolic of “love” or “love hurts”

I know, I know…

But that’s all coincidences, right?

Coincidences.

Sometimes things are coincidental.

Just coincidental.
