Celtic tattoos originated amongst ancient Britons and Pictish tribes, tatooing themselves for ceremonial and battle purposes as well as to ward them against evil spirits.

This Celtic ancestry and form of art is found in the illuminated prayer books and manuscripts of the monks of those days, like the Book of Kells that dates back to the ninth century, and it is from books like this one where people adopted the intrincate symbols to ink them in their bodies more recently.

The original pattern features a complex drawing of interwoven lines, representing eternity as the inseparable conexion of earthly and heavenly life, our constant conexion with the universe, love, friendship, loyalty, faith.

There are countless variations of the celtic knot, which insert intrincate figures of flowers, animals and very creative symbols to give it a particular and personal style.
