A sailor would have one swallow tattooed before setting out on a journey, and the second upon his return to the home port. It was believed that should a sailor not make it home, the swallows would carry their soul to the heavens. This led many sailors to start adopting the Swallow as a symbol of hope and a successful finish to a long journey. Seeing swallows was a sign that their travels were nearing an end as these birds never traveled far out to sea. The sighting of the swallow meant that land was near and that the long voyage and adventures were coming to an end.
