1 Rowland St, North Beach, San Francisco, CA
The Swallow a.k.a. Save Our Souls is a vibrant mural created by David "Meggs" Hooke and is located at 1 Rowland St. in North Beach. The mural references both tattoo culture and illustration that has influenced David. Traditionally, sailor tattoos using the swallow image represent safe passage and time spent at sea. David considers this wall as his homage to the maritime tattoo culture of the Bay Area and also represents fond memories of San Francisco, his home away from home.
