Saint Brendan Back-Piece Tattoo

Today I finished up my favorite backpiece of the year, Saint Brendan in the waves on a Catholic priest! The icon of the Saint was inspired by an old woodcarving, and we chose to position him on two dolphin fish and surround him with La Tene style wave spirals. Brendan is famous in the chronicles for being the navigator of a ship that "discovered" America well before the Vikings or Columbus. This Father navigates the seas of faith, bringing consolation and inspiration to his congregation.
