What you need to know about the upside down pineapple symbol
A pineapple left on a door step is a known symbol in swinger circles to let neighbours know you’re in ‘the lifestyle’.
As a tattoo it represents hospitality and a welcoming environment but an upside down pineapple is known to signify you are either a swinger or looking for a swinger party to attend.
Hidden upside down pineapple symbols have been spotted in cruise ships and hotels to capture the attention of those with aligned interests.
