Celtic tattoos and body art (as well as other tribal tattoos) have been very popular for the past decade or so.
The Celts were an Indo-European group of people who's history goes back to the second century BC.
The Celtic cross (aka Irish cross) is the standard Christian cross, but with a circle around the intersection. The Celtic cross is also used by neo-fascist movements, albeit in a very simple design and without ornamentations. For Catholic people the circle is a symbol of eternity, for them the Celtic cross symbolizes the infinity of God's love.
A Celtic cross is a popular choice for the upper arm – a great spot in general to put a tattoo, as that location makes it easy to hide it and show it, as you wish.
The Celtic butterfly tattoo is often quite small and feminine looking, making it appropriate for the ankle or shoulder. Celtic knots (aka mystic knot, endless knot) work really well as a tattoo design or part of a tattoo.
One type of Celtic knot is the Celtic love knot, symbolizing the constancy of two people in love. The Celtic trinity knot is a very simple, but powerful symbol and very suitable for a tattoo. Nothing symbolizes Ireland (homeland of all Celtic design) more aptly than the shamrock (a three-leafed clover), the quintessential Celtic design. It is often confused with the four-leaved clover, a very auspicious symbol to have on your body (the chances of finding a clover are 10.000 to 1)! A Celtic heart tattoo symbolizes the union of souls and is a good tattoo to express your devotion to your loved ones. The axis mundi (center of the world): the connecting line between the underworld, the earth and the sky.


Dave Cahan: singer from Depeche Mode, has got a green Celtic cross tattoo on his left upper arm.
Very interesting, I have thousands of Celtic pieces but none or very few carried the Celtic vibe.
Common Celtic tribal tattoo pictures include the Celtic heart, which symbolizes the union of two souls, the Celtic shamrock, which denotes hope, faith, love, and luck, and the Celtic trinity knot, whose three triangular corners can stand for the trinity in Christian, Pagan, or New Age religions. Romantics at heart will definitely be interested in possibly tattooing themselves with a Celtic heart.
All of this can come together to create a beautiful graphic that translates well to a tattoo picture. Lisa got her two tattoos (this and the one below) to celebrate six continuous years of breastfeeding. Put it down to the graceful, timeless beauty of these designs which seem to lend themselves particularly well to tattoo art. Intricate knotwork adorns the cross, making it both simple (in its overall design) and complex at the same time. The Celtic cross is a combination of the Christian cross and the sun, which was worshipped by the druids.
Just like a beautiful butterfly comes out of his cocoon, the person who wears a butterfly tattoo has gone through some difficult times and is ready to face the world again. The symbolic meaning of Celtic knots is not really clear, although some people attribute magical powers to the knots.
The tree of life is not a traditional Celtic design, it first appeared in the Book of Kells (an illustrated manuscript made by Celtic monks around 800 AD). I love how it was done with the relief around the knotts, Smart atrist, Im sure you paid a few for just having this guy do the work, I gave you a hard 9. The Celtic people were composed of Indo-European tribes that roamed Western Europe as far back in history as the second century BC.


The symbols used in any body artwork designs are typically created out of swirling lines, crosses, and loops. This is a traditional heart that is enhanced with the swirling scrolls that make Celtic body art so recognizable.
Many people have ties to the Celtic culture, but even more than that the inherent symbolism that Celtic designs have help to make it an even more personal addition to your body art. There are many different types of Celtic tribal tattoo designs, but we are going to explore a few of the most popular designs today. The tattoo represents the many facets of a mother: nurturing and care for her nursling, while also sultry and seductive for her partner (her "devilish" side). No matter what is going on in her life, she sees her children and knows that everything is going to be ok. She is currently nursing her youngest  (almost three years old), she's tandem nursed twice, and she even tandem nursed through three-quarters of a pregnancy. Celtic images are often composed of knots and swirls as well as traditional designs such as crosses, butterflies, and other designs. This type of tattoo is a perfect way to express your love and commitment to someone because it will symbolize the union of your souls together. This knot is in the shape of a triangle, and each of its three corners has a specific meaning. Most people would agree that such an intricate Celtic design is an apt image to symbolise eternity, since the knot never ends.
