Rosemarkie Stone Pictish Crescent Tattoo

Today a woman of Scottish descent came cross-country to add Pictish art to her tattoo collection. This unique knotwork crescent and v-rod originally appeared on a 8th c carved stone slab, and I reworked the interlace just a little bit to make this custom piece.

Below, you can see the side of the stone featuring the V-rod and Crescent that inspired this Tattoo:

"The Rosemarkie Stone or Rosemarkie Cross, a Class II Pictish stone, is one of the major surviving examples of Pictish art in stone.  Carved from fine-grained sandstone, the Rosemarkie stone was found in the ancient churchyard of the village of Rosemarkie . . . and is now on display in Rosemarkie's Groam House Museum" - Wikipedia
