Wanderlust colorful swallow tattoo on back of girl’s neck
Large, colorful swallow tattoos like this girl’s back tat are pretty uncommon, which makes this tattoo of a swallow in flight very unique. The ink is located on this girl’s neck and back, and features a blue, green and yellow image of a swallow with purple in the background. Beneath the swallow tattoo is the word “wanderlust,” which is a word used to describe a strong desire to wander or travel and explore the world. Similarly, the original meaning of a swallow tattoo was a symbol used by sailors to represent how many nautical miles they had sailed. Some sailors got swallow tattoos inked on their chests after sailing the seven seas or after crossing the equator from either direction, which plays to the “wanderlust” idea in this neck tattoo as well. This particular bird tattoo is very large and intricately-designed, so it must mean something very important to the wearer.
