Celtic 'Manhood Knot' Tattoo

Today a teacher who guides his students to discover history and learn from it came in for a Manhood Knot. He helps to sculpt the thought processes and perspectives of children, and is one of those noble servants of the educational system  to whom we intrust the future of our next generation. True manhood expressed through kindness to the young.

A warrior's shield pattern, this knot represents the three phases of a man's life: the youth, the warrior, and the sage. Each is balancing the rest, and they intersect in the middle and make up the flow of all life. A tattoo design for a man whose link to his Celtic heritage calls up visions of a stronger, bolder past.
