This weeks Tattoo Tuesday will share the 'Swallow'.
I love this tattoo - and after googling it - I now know the several meanings for having it:
1 - One swallow was tattooed on a sailor who sailed 5,000 nautical miles. Two swallows meant 10,000 miles travelled.
2 - Swallow with dagger in heart - Friend lost at sea.
3 - Bird on Hand or Neck - Jailbird.
4 - A sailor gets a set of swallows on his chest, The story goes if he or she drowns, the swallows come down and lift his soul to the heavens.
I imagine these girls below dont have it for any of the above reasons - I think perhaps they just like the designs same as me :)
Do you like these?? Would the meanings put you off having one?
