Once upon a time, there is a story says that if a sailor has sailed for more than five thousand kilometers, he will make a swallow tattoo on his body. The further he sails, the more swallow tattoos he will have. This kind of bird is well known as the symbol of a succeeded sailor. But now you can have the swallow inked into your skin without the compulsion to sail far away.
