Celtic tattoos represent the heritage of historic and diverse groups of tribal societies in Europe dating back to ancient times. And more modernly Celtic tattoos pay tribute to Ireland and Irish heritage in general.
Celtic tattoos come in a variety of different designs, some of the most popular designs include the shamrock, the Claddagh Ring which is also known as the Irish wedding band, the triple spiral or triskelion and of course the sacred and mysteriously beautiful knots which come in many different patterns.
Celtic tattoos look great on almost any area of the body, such as the back and behind the ear.
Black, green and red are perhaps the most common colors used within a Celtic tattoo.
Other less common Celtic tattoos include the harp, leprechauns, the ancient book of kells and various animals.
