Odin’s birds are known to be Ravens, but the interesting point of doing them as Swallows was to: 1) Swallows work into the idea of Traditional tattoo imagery more frequently and 2) Swallows are smaller in size compared to Ravens.  Their exaggerated-small size really adds to this notion of Odin being more Giant-Size or Godly than of mere mortal stature.
