I love the whole anchor Idea, and the saying "We all carry these things inside that no one else can see. They hold us down like anchors, they drown us out at sea." -- this isy favorite anchor quote yet
The swallow is a bird that chooses a mate for life. 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.
