Sailors used to get a sparrow tattoo for every 5,000 nautical miles they traveled.  Sparrows were also believed to bring a sailor good luck, so sometimes the sailor got his Sparrow tattoo before leaving the docks, hoping it would act as a talisman, and help bring him safely home again.  For my uncle that I barely knew. He was a Maine and passed away in 2000. Wish I could have know him better :(
