Is there a difference in the symbolism of sparrow swallow and bluebird tattoos?

I'm pretty sure there is no difference. the bluebird is a swallow (the tattoo swallow is based upon the Barn Swallow, the most common type of swallows. the Barn Swallow has a white/yellow/red belly and face, and blue back, so dark that it looks like black, but in the reflection of the sun you'll see that it's blue. that's why the swallow is mostly tattooed blue, and that's also why it's often referred to as the bluebird. I can't say I've ever gotten a real answer to any sort of difference between a tattoo sparrow and a tattoo swallow, apart from color. which pretty much means that they're all the same..
