  1. Two weeks time, Three books with a skull on top of them, on my left shoulder blade. black and grey. can't wait!

The Swallow tattoo in particular is very ambiguous and has many meanings over the past century. Originally, it was tattooed on sailors for good luck, as seeing a swallow at sea indicated that land was nearby. Eventually, having a swallow tattoo was seen as a career-landmark for the sailor as he got the swallow tattoo after sailing a certain amount of miles I believe.
