Celtic 'SightHound' Tattoo

Today’s client chose a sighthound pattern that I created by taking a cat pattern found in the Book of Kells and adapting it to look more like an Irish Wolfhound. I like the simplicity of the lines, and the dots work well with his freckles!

 I make no secret of my preference for sighthounds, and Irish Wolfhounds in particular. This pattern captures both the intent of their gaze and their tendency to get tangled up in their enthusiasm for the chase. A tattoo design for anyone who has ever felt a tug at their heartstrings when watching a sighthound galloping in pursuit of their prey. The Celtic dog of nobility, grace, and gentle splendor.
