Crane Dagger

A dagger point made of the bodies of two Celtic cranes was a custom request today to fill the calf of a discerning individual from the Least Coast. I am always flattered by the clients who travel so far to add to their tattoo collections. It is a mix of many rendering styles, using line and shading and dots to give dimensionality and sharp detail. The heads and wings are very traditional and from an ancient manuscript, but to fit the shape of the leg a triskele is morphed to become the abstract commingled tails.

  Two attenuated traditional Celtic cranes weave together to make the shape of a dagger point, a spiritual weapon that slices the mists of time to bring the past to life.
