Placement and cool idea. The sparrow represents love. I am a Greek mythology buff and especially love that the sparrow was associate with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. I want this tattoo or maybe three of the--to represent my husband and children
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.
