The first ink was used to tattoo a bird. It’s the shape – the ‘cock’ – which is the most distinguishing feature of a swallow’s body.

The bird is considered the symbol of the fish which eats insects and birds, according to the Daily Mail.
It was created in 1695, more than 3,000 years after the swallow was first spotted.

The owl is also known as the ‘bird of the sky’ according to the Daily Mail.
It is said that the owl is a ‘sorcerer of birds using a bird’s beak like a magical wand to control the flight of birds’, says the Daily Mail.
There are currently five different types of swallow tattoos on the market, with different meanings.
But there are similarities too, the Daily Mail added.
‘The fact that the owl has a crescent moon on it could indicate that it is a spirit bird with a mystical connection and the fact that a dove is also present on the owl could indicate that the owl is connected to the water element,’ they wrote.
It was used in 1695 to tattoo the bird with the letters ‘YHWH’, which stands for the biblical ‘Yahweh Who Is’ and is seen as a guardian of the holy land, and ‘HELL’ (for the devil) as a symbol of hell, according to the article.
A recent report by Bloomberg View has revealed that the government of Canada intends to spend around 1.05 trillion Canadian dollars this year on its new national infrastructure. This figure is equivalent to a combined government budget per day that amounts to the annual budget for the United States. The data is part of an analysis published alongside the 2016 budget for the federal government (pdf), and it paints an excellent picture of what Canadians are likely to see in the not-too-distant future.
“The Canadian economy will produce enough goods and services to fill every passenger car that makes it across the Great Plains. Our public services will handle the entire amount of electricity consumed by all Canadian households.”
