What is the meaning of a sparrow tattoo?

My brother has a tattoo of a sparrow on his upper back.

It used to be an old sailer tattoo but it is believed mainly to symbolize freedom, innocence, and eternity. The way the sparrow is pictured can define a lot about its meaning.

Sparrows symbolize many different things. Sometime sparrows are used to symbolize freedom. They're also a symbol of finding your true love because when a sparrow finds its soul mate they stay with them until their life's end.

The sparrow started off (like a lot of tattoos in American culture) on sailors out at sea for months at a time. It started off as a symbol of hope. Another thing it could be a symbol for is a lost/deceased friend. But, now a days, most people with a sparrow tattoo probably got it for visual pleasure.
