27 Attractive Swallow Tattoos

Swallow tattoos have a very old history and they have been traditionally associated with sailors. The swallows were considered to be a sign of good omen and it was also believed that if a sailor died during the voyage the swallow would bring their souls back to their homes. This is why the sailors used to get their bodies carved with the bird tattoo. The tradition has grown weak with the passage of time but the swallows are still very popular as tattoos. Men and women can be seen wearing the swallow as tattoo pieces on their different body parts.

The tattoos of swallows symbolize freedom, love, happiness, protection, homecoming and whole lot of other qualities. The swallows also look very beautiful and the splash of colors that graces their bodies, provides ample scope for creativity to the tattoo artists. Women are especially in love with the swallows.
