This client wanted it ALL. One Celtic cross that could encompass numerous personal symbolisms, and for which he made an epic trek across the country. We started with a classic St Patrick's cross, and made it a claddagh version with the addition of the hands, but holding a shamrock instead of a heart. Then the initials of his children went in the cuffs, and the initial of the love of his life, his wife who is the center of the family, in a heart inserted into the knotwork at the base of the cross. It was his first tattoo, and he traveled 2,337 miles to get it, so he made sure it was filled with meaning. My guess is it won't be his last tattoo!
