Celtic Tattoo Designs

December 7, 2010

For people of Celtic heritage (Irish, Scots or Welsh), getting a Celtic design is often a way of expressing pride in ones heritage. Celtic tattooing is a reaffirming of affinity to the indigenous artistic style of our ancestors.

Most tattoo designs are inspired by the Irish Illuminated Manuscripts. One of these manuscripts is ‘The Book of Kells’, which is on display at the library of Trinity College in Dublin. The dates on these books are from a much later time than when Celtic tattooing is believed to have begun. Currently it is thought that tattooing for the Celts started around the time when Celtic stone and metalwork began.

Celtic history goes back thousands of years. The early Celts displayed their skills in Celtic art forms such as metal, jewelry and weapons. The Romans regarded the Keltoi as fierce opponents. Celtic artwork and crosses can be found all over Ireland. They can also be found in other Celtic countries and in modern communities in the world.

Modern Celtic people have evolved symbol meanings for themselves (e.g. Awen symbol, Irish Claddagh or a Celtic motherhood symbol). The North American people who of Celtic origin wear these symbols as Celtic tattoos to show that they are of Celtic descent. Others may wear them to show their support for our culture, or just because they like them.

Ancient Celts passed knowledge down orally by telling stories. They did not keep many written records. Because of this, there is little evidence of their Celtic tattooing remaining, even though cross tattoos are very popular Celtic tattoo design.

Knot tattoos are usually made with Knotwork. They are usually made with no beginning and no end. A knot with no beginning or end symbolizes the never-ending cycle of death and rebirth.

Knots that are pure are unending unless they end with a zoomorphic design (feet, heads, or tails) or a spiral. Un-pure Knotwork ends with a broken, ended, strand or does not connect back to its origional band. Zoomorphic tattoo designs (or designs in general) are very similar in construction to normal knotwork. Zoomorphic tattoo designs, however, use animal heads, legs, tails, body, or feet. Spiral designs are designs that are formed out of lines which spiral and twirl in a parallell, usually uniform manor. Maze designs are designs that are have paralell lines in them that create a maze. Celtic Knotwork meaning defies literal translation. Its meaning is found on a much deeper (spiritual) level. Celtic tattoo knots represent a crossing of physical and spiritual interlace (e.g. interlaced knots). The never-ending path in the Knotwork strands represents the permanent continuum of life, love, and spiritual growth. This is much of why Celtic tattoos are so popular.
