Top Celtic Tattoos

Sometimes an animal will be the main focus in a tattoo while others may form on a part of the background. Power can be symbolized by a Celtic art tattoo of a bear while the dragon is associated with both power and magic. Horses were sacred to the Celts and a tattoo depicting a horse is linked to mystery and magic.

Dogs symbolize loyalty and good luck while eagles are linked with death, so are ravens and other birds. Butterflies were especially held in very high esteem by the Celts because of their beauty. Animals were very important to the Celts, animals such as butterflies, dogs and geese. A Celtic knot also carries with it the symbolism recognizable by anyone who has even a slight knowledge of Celtic art which is that it represents continuous life as well as the season's cycles and the complexity of nature. Knots resemble interwoven vines and are arranged to form a particular shape, for example a heart, but their shape can be almost anything a person can think of, from circles to the more complex star shape.

Celtic Knot Patterns Although many traditional Celtic designs are copied in tattoos, perhaps one of the most recognizable and coveted tattoo is the knot.
