 What kind of ship is the Black Pearl
On the mizzen-mast, or the last mast, it is gaff-rigged; that is to say, the sails run along the length of the ship, instead of the width.
Perhaps so - but then again, the definition of a full rigged ship is "square rigged on all (three or more) masts plus a gaff sail on the mizzen mast".
And this ship is the French galleon Couronne, launched in 1636, and in my opinion this one looks the closest to what we could see of the Pearl during the movie.

 Tattoo Symbols & Designs - Clipper Ship Tattoo Design Meaning
While many maritime tattoo designs will use a ship for various reasons, there was also a very specific reason for a tattoo of a full-rigged ship -- the singular and dangerous accomplishment of sailing around Cape Horn (the rocky headland of Chile, south of Tierra del Fuego, at the bottom tip of South America).
In the age of modern ships, however, the great peril of rounding the Horn is likely not the motivation for most maritime tattoos that use the clipper ship.
Ship lights are another of the older maritime tattoos that are rarely seen today.
