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. That's why I got mine! by Rayne790

Swallows. The return of the swallows is something I look for each year. They tell me summer has arrived.

"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_{}^{}."
