A sailor extends his tattooed arm in front of the Bosphorus. The images include a bow and arrow, axes, an envelope and other symbols. 
The Bosphorus, also referred to as the Istanbul Strait, forms the boundary between the European and the Asian sides of Turkey. At 32 kilometers (20 miles) long, the Bosphorus joins the Sea of Marmara with the Black Sea in Istanbul. Two suspension bridges cross over the Bosphorus: the Bosphorus Bridge, completed in 1973, and the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, completed in 1988.
