Small Fine line Swallow Temporary Tattoo - Set of 3
Set of three small fine line style swallow temporary tattoo. This tiny swallow has character and looks lovely on the skin.
The swallow tattoo has a rich and fascinating history. This design was traditionally chosen by sailors from the United Kingdom as a way to indicate their level of sailing experience. Swallows return to the same place every year to mate while on their enormous migratory journey. For this reason, sailors were attracted to the design as a talisman to ensure they would return home safely after their journey. These designs were typically more colorful and elaborate than our minimalist fine line swallow fake tattoo.
A sailor might choose to get a swallow before they embarked on their first trip, and get a second one once they returned to their home port safely. Another legend states that a single swallow indicates the sailor has traveled over 5,000 nautical miles, while two swallows indicate that he has traveled over 10,000 miles!
Still popular among sailors, swallows are now commonly seen on landlubbers as well. As powerful symbols of home, they are associated with love for family and friends and a return to home after a long journey or absence.
