DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Birds in tattooing have several meanings, among which the most recurrent are, especially for the swallow, freedom and safe return home. Birds are often also used to represent the soul.

In this design, a much stylized manaia forms the swallow´s head and breast, enforcing its protection value; just below, a fish hook symbolizes wealth and prosperity (it is also believed that seeing the first swallow will bring prosperity), and the waves and korus forming the wings are symbols of new beginning and change.
