Swallow tattoo's were actually gotten by pirates after they traveled miles past the equator and back! (: I'm going to get a swallow on my right right side rib cage for my best friend whom I've known for 10 years and we've been through hell and back.
My tattoo for my soul mate. "i have found the one whom my soul loves." Meaning of swallow tattoos: -soul mates, coming home safely,love and loyalty to the family,the return home after a struggle/hardship survived, or a victory gained.
