Originally a sticker on the back of cars used to denote a surfer, bodyboarder, or general beach bum whose life centered around the ocean or related beach going activities. Ever seen a 32 year old man whose primary activity was surfing and working on his tan? That person would have a salt life sticker.

Unfortunately the trend spread to senior citizens, wanna be hipsters, soccer moms, and other persons wishing to inform the world that yes, they too have visited the beach at some point in life and they have the sticker to prove it.
Dude: "Check out this wicked Salt Life sticker I just got for the back of my car!"

Me: "That's really lame dude. My Grandma has one of those on the back of her wheelchair and aren't you afraid of the ocean ever since you got raped by that dolphin?"

Dude: "I don't want to talk about it."

A company that makes stickers and shirts originally, primarily only used by white trash but has since spread to be seen on the back of every soccer mom van, drunken redneck driving with a beer or anybody else in Florida that wants to show off the idea that they once visited a beach. Makes you look trashy, says "my primary interest in life is working on my tan and getting drunk at the beach."
"Hey Joe, look at the salt life sticker on the back of that 2015 dodge ram. I bet that guy's a cool dude."

"HQ, i'm going to have a drunk driver in front of me, subject has a saltlife sticker, a pair of Oakley's and a dodge ram"

Being "Salt Life" is a mindset and preference for those who feel most comfortable surfing, swimming, fishing, diving, going to water-parks and being wet or in the sunshine. Its about relaxing on the beach and being kissed by the sun. If you label yourself a beach bum, then you live the salt life. If your whole house is decorated in coastal/nautical beach decor, you're a salt lifer. No matter where you live, what your job is or what degree you love....if you are salt life, you are salt life. Peace. Love. Salt Life.
Jack: Hey Cody, what's your lifestyle preference?

Logan: Salt Life!

Being passionate about the Ocean and utilizing it in your life. Whether it be via boating, surfing, diving, fishing or just being a beach bum. Salt Life is a company that sells apparel, jewelry, stickers and etc, so "Salt Lifers" can show their pride.
I've been bumming around the beach a lot lately. Really living the Salt Life.

Susie moved to Florida and is really into the environment now. She goes to the public beaches and cleans up trash. She wants to keep it clean so she can enjoy her new salt life.
