Celtic knots tattoo in the shape of a clover
Because Celtic knot tattoos are traditionally associated with the Irish, tattoos featuring Celtic designs often incorporate other Irish symbols, like the clover in this tattoo picture. The Celtic knots tattoo is inked in the shape of a three-leaf clover, which, according to legend, St. Patrick used as a symbol of the holy trinity. According to Christian beliefs, the holy trinity – often depicted in Celtic trinity tattoos – includes the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. For some people however, a Celtic trinity tattoo may actually symbolize faith, love and hope – the three theological values found in first Corinthians 13:13. Other people still may get Celtic trinity tattoos that stand for mind, body and spirit; or eternal life, everlasting love and spiritual growth.
