"The Swallow's Tail" was Salvador Dalí's last painting, based on the mathematical catastrophe theory of René Thom. It was taken from Thom’s four-dimensional graph of the same title, combined with a second catastrophe graph, the s-curve dubbed, 'the cusp'. Thom’s model is alongside the curves of a cello and the instrument’s f-holes, which, as they lack the small pointed side-cuts of a traditional f-hole, connote the mathematical symbol for an integral in calculus: \int_{}^{}."

The swallow is a bird that chooses a mate for life and will only nest with that bird and no other. Therefore a swallow tattoo is also a symbol for everlasting love and loyalty to the family. Swallow pairs travel long distances, only to find their way back to each other at home.
