Rock and Roll - Old School Swallow Tattoo Pendant

In Mark's Rock and Roll range he takes inspiration from his everyday life. Mark owns and rides customised Harley Davidsons, is tattooed, and also tattoos by hand using traditional techiques. As the rock and roll subculture is referenced more and more in mainstream and the fashion world, Mark's Rock and Roll range pursues his vision of 'Subculture as High Culture'. Old school tattoos traditionally adorned the arms of sailors and navy men - imagery used often had its roots in the briney depths. The swallow was often worn by sailors to signify distances successfully navigated, or as swallows return to the same location every year to mate and nest the swallow was used as a symbol of loyalty or a talisman to help the sailor to safely return home. Each peice is hand-made by Mark in Sterling Silver and bright cold enamel - vitrious enamel is available POA. Mark will undertake individual comissions based upon your tattoo POA. The weight (excluding necklet) is 40g.
