I have always loved the old school swallow tattoos. I only love them more after learning their history. For sailors they were a symbol of returning home safely. Swallows return home every year and birds in general are a sign that a ship is close to land. I also like how sailors would get them for every 5000 nautical miles or sailing the seven seas or other benchmark occasion
