Pictish 'Duality Double Disc' Tattoo

Today a client with both Hawaiian and Celtic heritage returned for a second piece. His first, done a decade ago, has seen much surf and sun. The new addition melds a Celtic spiral whirl  taken from an ancient Irish metal brooch with a 4-spiral from a Viking sun stone, connected with a pattern from the Shandwick stone from Scotland. Like the wearer, it unites many cultures into one double-disc, a shape found on many of the ancient Pictish standing stones.

"The double disc is a Pictish symbol of unknown meaning, that is frequently found on Class I and Class II Pictish stones, as well as on Pictish metalwork. The symbol can be found with and without an overlaid Z-rod (also of unknown meaning), and in combinations of both.  -  Wikipedia
