Brilliant blue & orange swallow tattoo on girl’s hip
This colorful swallow tattoo is inked in bright blue and orange, and is tattooed on this girl’s right hip/back area. In most swallow tattoos, the bird is facing forward, or towards the wearer’s front, which sometimes means that the person has overcome an obstacle in life and is now looking forward to more positive things. In this girl’s swallow tattoo, however, the bird is looking back, which means it could have something to do with a negative event in her past. There are a number of possibilities for a swallow tattoo meaning though, and this girl could have gotten the ink as a simple nautical symbol, as a representation of true love or loyalty, or as a memorial to a loved one she has lost, which could also explain the backward-facing swallow.
