Dragon around Florian Maltese Cross Celtic Tattoo

Today a Texan firefighter in the area to combat the numerous wild fires currently burning was able to carve out time in his schedule to acquire this new skin art. He had a previous tattoo of the Maltese cross, so I drew up a dragon that filled the upper arm and finishes with a tail that swoops to the inside. Bespoke coverage that brings his tattoo up to a half sleeve.

"Crosses of this design have been used since around the First Crusade in 1096. The design is said to symbolize the eight points of courage: loyalty, piety, bravery, frankness, glory and honor, no fear of death, compassion toward the sick and poor, and respect for the church."  -st-florian-medal.com
