Black swallow tattoos on girls hips
Swallow tattoos often come in pairs, like in this girl’s symmetrical hip tat. The bird tattoo features two swallows, one inked on the inside of her right hip and one inked on the inside of her left. The swallows are inked in black and white and are facing in, towards the center of her stomach. In many cases of bird tattoos depicting two swallows, the meaning of the ink is true love or loyalty. This is because swallows choose a mate for life and will only nest with that one mate. Other possible meanings of a swallow tattoo include returning home, traveling, freedom, or a nautical symbol. The birds in this girl’s swallow tattoo go nicely with the large black and white sleeve tattoo she has inked on her left arm.
