I heard that if I sailor lost a good mate at sea he would put a dagger through his swallow tattoo to symbolize his lost friend. My grandfather told me this and showed me a picture of his sailer friend. He had 2 swallows on his chest and one had a dagger through it. My grandpa then told me about thow he had lost his brother (a sailor too)at sea.
To me the tattoo of a swallow means that you have gotten your freedom. Its a sign of respect, loyalty, pride and trust. Also, music is a big part of my life and it symbolizes rock. The story goes that in the olden days, a sailor would get a set of swallows or sparrows on its chest and if he\she drowned, the swallow would come down and lift his soul to the heavens. It means you'll always be okay, its like a guardian angel.
Upon having sailed 5,000 miles at sea a sailor would get a swallow tattooed on one side of his chest, after having 10,000 miles of seafare behind him he would get the second swallow.
his tattoos are mostly on his arms and his chest.
A symbol of good luck, it is also associated with the coming of spring, homecoming and resurrection. A sailor received a swallow on each side of his chest to show that they had travelled 5000 miles.
if u ask me, it means nothing. Tattoos are usually symbols of something. As long as you feel comfortable with the tattoo it shouldn't matter. Remeber though, tattoos are for life unless you want to get it lasered off which gets expensive. It doesn't mean your "gay" if that's what u were asking.
No. Unless its hidden. Like on your chest. No neck, arms, hands, leg tattoos.

Chest tattoos can be as varied as their owners. The most popular designs are frequently nautical and used by sailors. Dragons and birds, especially eagles, also figure prominently.
So you can swallow, and if you didn't have a chest your head would be right connected to your body.
