120 Celtic Green, Love and Sailor Knot Tattoos

You may be thinking that “knots” is too banal a topic to deal with on a tattoo page, yes. That it has more to do with that “everything fits in the body”, but we advise you to stop for a moment and observe everything that can be found in relation to knots that, a priori, may seem something related only to the sea . Nothing further (and closer). Knots have strong symbolism regarding their connectionsAs for what binds you to something or someone and, like everything that has a strong meaning, we love to talk to you as a possibility to mark your skin.

In fact, we are not going to start with the usual marine knots, but with Celtic symbols, which may go back centuries and centuries. When you see a knot, especially one that is well done, of course, you couldn’t help but keep an eye on what would be the beginning and the end, where you have to pull to undo it, like a puzzle. In the Celtic culture they had a protective or eternal life, although it is obvious, seeing their images, that many people choose it simply for aesthetic reasons, which is not a little bit of tattoos.

In Celtic culture, and we have already had occasion to point out something about it, the tree plays a prominent role. It is established as the maximum symbol of life, of nature and, beyond that, as that which, by itself, unites the three stages: the depth of the earth (through its roots), the surface (of the which is part of its trunk) and the sky (which seems to touch the leaves of its glass if we see it from below). It has always provided us with shade under which to take shelter from the sometimes scorching sun, or giving us rich fruits in some cases. It is not surprising that the Celts already attributed a fundamental importance to it. Imagine, then, a beautiful tree surrounded by the trail of a knot that never ends, making a circular composition. Pretty right? Also loaded with symbolism.

The knots, as we mentioned before, they are also important in the marine world. I have had the opportunity to attend restaurants on the beach where, to show their seafaring tradition (and the rich and fresh fish and seafood), they had hanging on their walls small showcases with sailor knots and their names . A catalog in which you could see how beautiful it is and how complicated it is.

Among some of the marine knots that we can find, is, for example, the flake, which remains something similar to a number eight but triple. Also the multiple plain, which, once done, remains as a coiled rope in another, like a small snake. OR the fisherman’s knot or anchor, which is threaded to other elements (such as a ring) and serves, for example, to dock a boat.

Among the places where a knot can be well, we have to talk about the doll. In her It could very well be a rope bracelet that, behind or in front, has a knot. A rope that could be thicker or thinner, depending on taste, but whose knot would symbolize how complicated life sometimes is, before which you have to be strong like a rope. Or that, despite the twists and turns, how much it twists, we are connected by a thread (rope) invisible to all the people who appear in it.

Give it the meaning you want, but whatever it is, it sure looks good.
