Scottish Kings' Cross Tattoo Design

This cross is modeled after one on Iona, in the graveyard of the Scottish Kings. It has beautiful knotwork interlacing, and the central cobweb that hearkens back to the story of Robert the Bruce taking inspiration from a spider's perseverance while he was imprisoned. He saw that the spider tried over and over to achieve his goal, and resolved never to give up. When the spider finally made the link to achieve the span of web, the Bruce knew he too could succeed. A tattoo for Celtic heritage, for strength of purpose, for noble effort.
