Tattoo Flash Sheet - Swallow

Swallow Tattoo Hmm...for me and the hubs since we fish so much? It isn't sailing but we've logged quite a few miles. And we're loyal to each other, another significant detail of the swallow.

The Swallow: In addition to indicating that a sailor had sailed 5000 miles, swallows are also associated with the idea of return. This "return" symbolism is rooted in two ideas. The first was the swallow's famous migration pattern, always returning home to San Juan Capistrano. Second, it was believed that if a sailor dies at sea, birds carry his soul home to heaven.
