I love tattoos, I'm not covered in them, but Joe has a fair few, with a plan for many more. I especially love tattoo traditions and one of my long time favourites is the swallow. There are two 'legends' about why people would get swallows, they were usually tattooed to sailors and each swallow would signify that the sailor had travelled 5,000 nautical miles. The more romantic legend, is that swallows always return to the same spot to mate and therefore would guarantee a sailors return. Therefore the bird stands for love, care and affection towards family and friends, showing the loyalty of the person always returning to them.They also said that if a sailor was to drown while away the swallow would take his soul to heaven.
Being such a big swallow fan, I was obviously more than happy when Funky Laser sent me this lovely laser cut acrylic necklace. It's a fun piece of jewellery to liven up simple day to day outfits.
Funky Laser also create name necklaces, which I am lusting for, photo booth props and custom cake toppers.
Are you a fan of acrylic necklaces?
