The one tattoo is of flying swallow across a sunset and the other one is ‘p’ brand mark which is drawn by Cutler Beckett who is a member of East India Company and his past was attached with jack and as he said that ‘I aim to see that anyone who sails under a pirate flag or wears a pirate spot get what’s he deserves: a short drop and a sudden stop.

The backside of the jack sparrow is deeply tattooed which is one of the most known and legendary poems of all the time known as ‘’Desiderata’’.

There is confusion if the tattoo is of swallow and not sparrow is still not confirmed.

The second one is the poem Desiderata on Jack’s back which is the poem from an unknown poet because it was found in the church of Baltimore in 1692.

This poem means ‘’Something that essential’’ or ‘’Essential Things’’.

This poem is all about peace and love. It tells us to be kind to others and also treat everyone gently and to accept who they are and also be gentle with ourselves.

It teaches us to be faithful and do not distress ourselves with imaginings.

We see in all the movies that Jack doesn’t kill anyone and he just tries to defend himself in the best way so it’s an example of the Desiderata poem
