Hamilton Clan Badge Tattoo

The fortunate Scots have a lovely form of tribal identification in the Clan Badge. Specific to the Scottish clan system, the belt represents fealty to a Laird. Each clan has specific heraldic symbols inside their belt. The Hamiltons are traditionally sawyers, harvesters of forests, so for this custom version of their badge we chose a crown, a symbolic oak tree made of a few stylized leaves and acorns, and a two-man saw slicing into the trunk. I take pride in being able to do research both in my own archives and online, to make accurate and unique designs that are correct to the heraldic standards. This is true tribal art.
