Love Birds swallow temporary tattoo

Love birds temporary tattoo, colourful swallows 6 * 6 cm. The swallow tattoo was a symbol used historically by sailors to show off their sailing experience : a sailor with one swallow had travelled over 5,000 nautical miles. Travelling these great distances was extremely difficult and dangerous in the early days of sailing, so  the tattoos denoted a very experienced and valuable sailor.

Legend of the swallow tattoo

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. A sailor would have one swallow tattooed before setting out on a journey, and the second swallow tattooed at the end of their tour of duty, upon return to their home port.
