Half sleeve with Celtic knot design
This person has a half sleeve tattoo that features a variety of traditional Celtic tattoo designs. The Celtic sleeve tattoo is inked in black and white and extends from the left shoulder nearly to the elbow. Beginning at the shoulder, the first Celtic symbol is a spiral, which is one of the most common symbols of the Celtic culture. A common meaning of Celtic spiral tattoos is the cycle of birth, growth and death. In this particular Celtic tattoo, the spiral has a star at its center, music notes throughout the design and an arrow where the spiral ends, which could symbolize infinity or eternity. There is another spiral symbol at the bottom of the Celtic sleeve tattoo, and a Celtic knot tattoo in the middle, which also represents eternity.
