DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

The swallow is one of the favourite subjects for tattoos, especially in the old school style, and it is associated to several meanings.

Among the most frequently used ones there are freedom and fidelity.

That is because other than being just undefatigable travellers, swallows always returns every year to their old nest.

This Maori styled swallow was requested by Steven.

The body is made here by the body of a shark, symbolizing adaptability and strength, quality enforced by the stylized shark teeth in the wings; the tiki represents protection, the koru a new beginning, a new life, and the fish hook is for prosperity.
