The swallow tattoo was a symbol used historically by sailors to show off their sailing experience.
According to one legend, a sailor tattooed with one swallow had travelled over 5,000 nautical miles. Another legend holds that since swallows return to the same location every year to mate and nest, the swallow will guarantee the sailor returns home safely.
Either way this is a lovely talisman for travellers to make sure they return home safely after most wonderful and exciting journeys.
