You can add all kinds of shapes to personalize your cross. This Celtic cross takes up his entire upper arm so he had room to incorporate a heart and crown at the bottom and a shamrock at the center. The tattoo is inked in only light and dark grey with a bit of shading.

Crosses are symbols for the Christian religion but Celtic crosses have become symbols for Irish identity. The knots and circle at the four points of the cross are Celtic characteristics. The shamrock helps to portray this newer meaning of the cross.
