Today a man whose enthusiasm for his heritage led him to want a Celtic tattoo put the finishing touches on this knotwork forearm piece. Three sessions over a period of months and now he is embellished forever with an ethnic and artistic statement.
Today a man with a pre-existing family crest came in to add a tree of life, making it into a family tree of life. We started with two Celtic hearts knotted together to form the roots, then came up the arm with branches and leaves to envelop the Mahedy crest.
Today a woman who was deeply impressed by the symbolism of this crop circle came in for a permanent installation of it. Two sharks circling a Celtic triquetra knot, they come alive in the translation. Comparing them with the photographs below will show the ways we made discrete changes to make a more effective tattoo pattern.

Today a first: a cruise liner passenger disembarked, zipped up from the docks to the studio for a quick embellishment with a permanent souvenir. A simple little winged lion, a favorite image from the illuminated gospels, power and strength in a mythic form.
