Celtic Tree of Life Tattoo

A Tree of Life in full foliage, anchored to the ground with a sculpted Celtic knot forming the roots. A Texan who is understandably proud of the muscularity of his calves, shaped by scenic road miles on his bicycle, chose to place this tattoo where is will be noticed as he whizzes by. The leg is a favorite place for installing an intricate tattoo, with the skin stretched taut the details can be crisp and fine. And it'll look fine when he wears a kilt!

An image central to the Celtic reverence for the land is the Tree of Life, shown here balanced with a grounding in knotwork roots. A tattoo of this mighty oak of life is a way to express a connection with the growing cycles, the natural year, and the spirit of the vegetative universe.
