Celtic Monarch Butterfly Tattoo Design

Today an old grammar school pal of mine came in for a second tattoo, a commissioned concept of a Celtic monarch butterfly. She specifically asked me to retain the distinctive dots on the edges of the wings, that make a monarch so instantly recognizable. Keeping them in, I then filed the interior with a knotwork pattern.
