  1. Swallow tattoos

    Nice! I'm planning on getting two just like that in the same location. I have always heard that old sailors would get a swallow tattoo for each trip across the ocean. I don't know if that is true, but I've been wanting a tattoo to symbolize my two combat deployments overseas, and I think this would be perfect.

    I just got my sixth tattoo and it is my first with any kind of fine detail. It is from a 19th Century woodcut of the Virginia State Seal and it is roughly 6 inches tall and 5 inches wide. Does anyone have any idea how woodcut/etching style tattoos hold up over time (if treated properly)?
