Planning phases: Irish tattoo

posted in: News 0

Sketch for Ireland tattooWaiting for the spring painting season, I’ve been┬áspending the cooler months doing a lot of research and design… Here’s a taste: Ireland! I’ve always enjoyed old-skool manuscript illumination and the complicated knotwork… also it’s something I can easily do, having a Northern European background and having studied, read and visited that region rather a lot.

Still, do you know how many cultures also have an Endless Knot infinity symbol?? Just about as basic and universal as you get… at least for anything Indo-European, and China…

This one should be something that a lot of East Boston & Boston residents resonate with, and I’d like to make it really big… Finding that strong black-and-white graphics are the way to go.
